Book Club Curatorial Program

New Orleans Museum of Art
Getting there
1 Collins Diboll Circle, New Orleans, LA

Join fellow book lovers as we read and discuss fiction and nonfiction books related to art, artists, art museums, NOMA’s collections and exhibitions. Our full 2019 schedule and reading list has been announced. Organized by NOMA’s Felix J. Dreyfous Library, the Book Club is an informal group. You do not have to attend every meeting and we understand if you have to leave a discussion or program early. The book club offers several types of programs: a book discussion group that meets once a month (no reading in December), curatorial programs, field trips, and Meet the Author receptions. Most book club programs start promptly at noon, but please arrive at 11:30 a.m. if you wish to bring a sack lunch or meet beforehand. NOMA will provide water and soft drinks. RSVP for the meetings you wish to attend so we can prepare the meeting space. Please contact NOMA’s Education Department at 504.658.4128 or for information about joining the NOMA Book Club. September 2019 Selection de Kooning: An American Master by Mark Stevens and Annalyn Swan Alfred A. Knopf, 2006, ISBN: 978-0375711169 Willem de Kooning is one of the most important artists of the twentieth century, a true “painter’s painter” whose protean work continues to inspire many artists. In the thirties and forties, along with Arshile Gorky and Jackson Pollock, he became a key figure in the revolutionary American movement of abstract expressionism. Of all the painters in that group, he worked the longest and was the most prolific, creating powerful, startling images well into the 1980s.
