Common Purpose: Support Local Organizations at NOMA

One event on January 20, 2022 at 10:00 am
For two days this month, your visit to NOMA directly supports other local organizations doing great work. Suggested by the artists whose work is currently featured in NEW at NOMA: Recent Acquisitions in Contemporary Art, these nine organizations represent a diverse cohort of our city’s leaders, organizers, and residents.
All museum admission from Saturday, January 15, and Thursday, January 20, will be donated directly to these nonprofits: 826 New Orleans, Birthmark Doulas, Children’s Hospital New Orleans, Familias Unidas en Acción, House of Tulip, Innocence Project New Orleans, Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies, Louisiana Bucket Brigade, and Our Voice Nuestra Voz.
