Managing Partner, Robert M. Steeg, recently became a Board Member of the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA). The museum just completed a very successful Art in Bloom, the annual exhibition of botanical sculpture, which was attended by over 1,000 patrons.
NOMA is currently presenting a major retrospective of the conceptual artist Mel Chin, which is on view through May 25, 2014. The exhibition ”Mel Chin: Rematch” is the most expansive presentation of the artist’s work to date, the outgrowth of extensive research and archiving of Chin’s past work and artistic practice, uncovering rarely seen materials from over the past four decades. His body of work encompasses a wide variety of media including sculpture, video, drawing, painting, land art, and performance art.
The next major event on NOMA’s calendar is Love in the Garden, scheduled for September 26, 2014. The annual event, which is held in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden, honors five local New Orleans artists.
