A major exhibition of artwork by the late William Woodward, co-founder of the Newcomb art program, opens on Saturday (Oct. 17) at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
"William Woodward 1859–1939: An American Impressionist in New Orleans" is the sixth collaborative exhibition between the Historic New Orleans Collection and NOMA, located in City Park.
The exhibition features more than 70 paintings, etchings, sculpture and ephemera related to Woodward's life and works. A native of Massachusetts, Woodward came to New Orleans in the 1880s to teach fine arts, mechanical drawing and architectural drawing at Tulane University.
The exhibit will remain on view through February 28, 2010. Admission is free for Louisiana residents through Nov. 14; regular NOMA admission rates apply after that date. The museum is open on Wednesday, noon until 8 p.m., and Thursday-Sunday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
