On Saturday, May 22, 2021, join The NOCCA Institute for ART OF THE FEAST, a celebration of music, food, and fine art. Whether you attend in person or enjoy from the comfort of your home, you’ll experience a fabulous meal, great music, and a chance to win artwork, vacation packages, and more in our silent auction and raffle. Guests will enjoy an exquisite five-course, seasonally inspired chef’s dinner and wine pairing with live entertainment by Kevin Gullage and Doreen Ketches.
ART OF THE FEAST generates important funds for The NOCCA Institute, which oversees programs like support for students, artist residencies, and many other initiatives that benefit the young artists at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA), as well as their teachers and the community. ART OF THE FEAST is presented by the James P. Raymond Jr. Foundation, with additional support from the Pamela and Warner Williams Charitable Fund. ~ Website
