- FORESIGHT: Beaux Arts Ball 2020
At the New Orleans Architecture Foundation, we have been closely following the development of the COVID-19 crisis. With the recent implementation of Stay At Home orders from both the state and city, everyone is feeling the impact. In order to keep our community safe, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Beaux Arts Ball until early fall. The Music Box has been generous and flexible with us as we work on rescheduling. As we move through the next few months, our team will be in touch with updates, both on the Beaux Arts Ball and our other initiatives. We remain committed to the NOAF’s mission: Enhancing public appreciation of architecture and design through advocacy and education. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We hope you are staying safe and healthy.
