Annual Art Show & Patron Party...
An Artful Way to Give
We are very grateful for the support and dedication of the New Orleans community to Poydras Home’s annual fundraiser. We hope you will also choose to make Poydras a priority in your charitable giving. Consider a corporate or individual patron sponsorship of the 20th Annual Poydras Home Art Show & Patron party. The Patron Party will be Thursday evening, October 30, 2014 and the indoor and outdoor Art Show will be Saturday, November 1. Show proceeds benefit the residents of Poydras Home. In addition to the donations of participating artists who donate a percentage of their sales to Poydras Home, sponsorships and Patron Party ticket sales are critical in helping to meet the funding goals of specific identified needs of our residents each year.
The ultimate experience for both serious collectors of art and the casual enthusiast, the Annual Poydras Home Art Show features the finest in fine art and crafts. An annual tradition in New Orleans since its inaugural event in 1994, the area-renowned Poydras Home Art Show showcases luminaries from the local and regional art scenes with a hanging juried art and photography exhibition in its historic main building and non-juried art and fine crafts displayed under tents on the Home’s beautiful grounds. This year’s show will feature more than 2,500 original works of art by New Orleans and regional artists. The indoor and outdoor show is free and open to the public on Saturday, November 1, 2014.
The "Sneak Peek" Poydras Patron Party is held at Poydras Home and patrons and guests savor gourmet culinary delights while having the first opportunity to preview and purchase the juried art. The evening includes a Silent Auction and live entertainment featuring The Big Easy Buddies performing "Under the Boardwalk," the hits of The Four Seasons, The Beach Boys, Motown and Doo-Wop. Tickets to the Patron Party are $100.
