To kick off this wonderful new exhibit, The New Orleans Museum of Art had a glamour celebration: Odyssey 2019: Mystère Louisiane presented by IBERIABANK. The Odyssey Ball raises the funds necessary to support NOMA’s nationally recognized exhibits and educational programs. This year’s chairs, Anne & Edmund Redd, Rupa & Tarun Jolly, and Jennifer Heebe, along with the entire 2019 Odyssey Ball Committee truly created a wonderful evening.
The Entertainment was provided by Elan Artists that consisted of Musicians, Headliners and Performers that certainly mesmerized the crowd with their fabulous singing, dancing and performances. The entertainment began just as you walked in with a glamorous violinist playing in the center of the room with elegant dancers seeming to mingle in the crowd with ballet-like movements. The entertainment continued throughout the evening with dancing performance that enticed all guests to hit the dance floor including a little bit of Lady Gaga at the end.
Guests enjoyed wonderful food that included items like crab cakes, hand-made crepes, and wonderful chocolates such as chocolate ganache. There were also a variety of champagnes and even a Buffalo Trace Bourbon Bar (provided by the Sazerac).
The Museum is opened Tuesday through Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sunday from 11am-5pm. Click HERE to see more.
