The first fall evening of the season saw another successful “LOVE in the Garden,” NOMA’s annual benefit for the popular and beautiful Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. The garden party was held in the evening, with a patron party beforehand. Under the ancient oaks, guests fraternized and mingled to the dulcet tones of local favorites the Brass-A-Holics and the Dominic Minx Trio. Catering was provided by a wide variety of local vendors, including Café Degas, Commander’s Palace, Coquette and Delachaise, just to name a few.

Co-chairs Elizabeth LeBlanc and Jennifer Rareshide organized the evening honoring five local artists for their impact on the cultural community of New Orleans. Honored artists included Courtney Egan, Lin Emery, Richard Johnson, Grouver Mouton and Amanda Stone Talley.

On the 10th anniversary of the erection of the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, the honored artists had their work acknowledged in a short presentation during the patron party, which then proceeded smoothly into the garden party. Proceeds from the event go towards exhibitions at NOMA, as well as the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, which is free and open to the public.
