NOMA and the Japan Club of New Orleans are partnering again to present Japan Fest—a daylong celebration of Japanese culture that shines the spotlight on the city's Nippon influences, and the extensive offerings in NOMA's Asian galleries. The day begins with an energizing performance on the museum steps by the Kaminari Taiko drummers, and continues with demonstrations, art making activities, tours, performances, and more throughout the museum and the Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Visitors are also invited to participate in a classic Japanese Tea Ceremony. 1 Collins Diboll Circle. $5; free for NOMA members. (504) 658-4100 or noma.org.
