NOMA Book Club Curatorial Program

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

The NOMA Book Club meets monthly to discuss fiction and nonfiction books related to art in NOMA’s collection and exhibitions. It is an informal group open to anyone on a month-to-month basis. You do not have to attend every meeting or read every book! In addition to monthly book discussions, the Book Club meets periodically for curatorial programs related to the book selections. Books are selected in advance and planned for the entire year according to the exhibition schedule. Participants are expected to procure their own copy of the selected titles. Meetings are held in person or via Zoom, determined at the beginning of each month. All meetings begin at 12 pm. For more information on the NOMA Book Club please contact NOMA’s Curator of Education, Tracy Kennan, at or (504) 658-4113.
