Home is where the art is. For so many artists in New Orleans, that first home was NOCCA. Not only does NOCCA provide an environment to nurture budding painters, pianists, and novelists, NOCCA’s Academic Studio also offers young artists an excellent academic education. NOCCA plays a unique role in the vibrant New Orleans landscape, providing an environment that nurtures future chefs, painters and designers, filmmakers and musicians, choreographers, and novelists. You can ensure that future generations benefit from NOCCA’s creative environment by supporting The NOCCA Institute’s ART&SOUL gala sponsored by The Meraux Foundation, on Saturday, March 21, 2020 . The evening will include a live and silent auction, an incredible music lineup, plus food and drink by some of our favorite New Orleans chefs and restaurants in NOCCA's Chevron Forum on Homer Plessy Way.
