On Wednesday, January 23, NOAHH partnered with Isidore Newman School and the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) for a fundraising event presenting and selling the art of local students. Featuring pieces by students from kindergarten and up, the event raised money for both NOAHH and the students themselves, with works ranging from 3D art installations to photographs and paintings.
As part of our grand opening celebration for our new ReStore, the art reception was designed to focus on the New Orleans community and engender mutual support between NOAHH and the creative community of New Orleans. The art exhibition’s theme was “What Home Means to Me,” and students from both schools created many works that evocatively expressed this idea.
The event featured the musical stylings of George French and the Original Tuxedo Jazz Band, catering from Pigeon Catering, and recognition for the many people who put long hours into making this event possible. Dozens of art pieces were sold (and even a little furniture), and the artwork continued to be displayed in the ReStore for several weeks afterward so that the community could appreciate the students’ work.
NOAHH thanks all of the students and our partners at NOCCA and Isidore Newman for all of their hard work, and we look forward to furthering our engagement with the artistic community of New Orleans. “
