Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden

To the left of the New Orleans Museum of Art is a five-acre sculpture garden. Sydney and Walda Besthoff donated forty-one pieces to the museum. The other pieces came from NOMA's permanent collection. The garden reopened the same day that the museum reopened - Sunday, March 5. It was closed because of damage from Hurricane Katrina.
