Spared from the Storm: Masterworks from the New Orleans Museum of Art
June 4 - October 5, 2008

In 1910 Isaac Delgado donated funds to New Orleans to erect an art museum, and the city assumed responsibility for acquiring and maintaining a collection. Largely through the generosity of its citizens, the New Orleans Museum of Art now houses what may be the most comprehensive art collection in the American South. The museum survived the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and now the exhibition Spared from the Storm celebrates the European and American portion of New Orleans’s distinguished collection.
