Join us in celebrating a half-century of “Odyssey” with “The 50th Odyssey” presented by IberiaBank. This year’s event is inspired by New Orleans Museum of Art’s fall exhibition, “Seeing Nature: Landscape Masterworks from the Paul G. Allen Family Collection,” which includes 40 masterpieces spanning five centuries of European and American Landscape Paintings.

The evening will include delicious cuisine, craft cocktails and entertainment by Gio, Karma and DJ violinist Timothee Lovelock. Guests will also enjoy a silent auction and “George Dunbar: A Retrospective,” a survey of the career of the New Orleans native who helped to introduce abstract art to the South.

Thank you to Co-Chairs Susu and Andrew Stall, Volunteer Committee Chair Dana Hansel, Board President Julie George and IberiaBank (Presenting Sponsor) CEO Daryl Byrd for being on our cover.
