Southerners love a good garden party, and the 8th annual LOVE in the Garden combines a verdant outdoor setting with entertainment by Sasha Masakowski, John Boutte, the 610 Stompers and DJ Soul Sister. It takes place in the New Orleans Museum of Art's (NOMA) Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28.
Grace Wilson, director of communications and marketing at NOMA, says the event will honor local artists who have made contributions to the city, including George Dunbar, Rashida Ferdinand, Mitchell Gaudet, Miranda Lake and George Schmidt. Tickets are $60 for museum members and $75 for nonmembers and can be purchased at www.noma.org or by calling 504-658-4121. — Angela Hernandez
