The evening of February 8 saw the annual New Orleans Museum of Art “Fellows Dinner” graced with 200 guests to witness the presentation of the 2014 Isaac Delgado Memorial Award. Presented by Susan M. Taylor, the Montine McDaniel Freeman Director, David F. Edwards, President of the Board of Trustees and the staff of NOMA, the evening included a dinner with a cocktail hour beforehand and musical entertainment by the Dominic Minx Trio.
An annual event, the “Fellows Dinner” is NOMA’s opportunity to thank generous donors for their support over the past year. In 1975, the dinner began to also mark the presentation of the Isaac Delgado Memorial Award to an individual whose long-term service, support and dedication sets the precedent for the institution.
The identity of the winner is always a secret until the dinner, and this year the award was presented to H.M. “Tim” Favrot Jr., a member of the board since the 1980s who was involved with the planning and execution of the 1991 building addition. He also recently created the Favrot Architecture and Design Endowment, which will allow NOMA to continue to challenge and enhance the traditional museum experience and make the extensive permanent collection one of the most visible and responsive in the country.
