Located in Shreveport, Louisiana, Moonbot Studios is a place where outstanding individual talents come together to bring extraordinary entertainment to their clients and their audiences from an array of media platforms. Their film, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, won the Academy Award in 2012 for Best Animated Short.

A love letter to books, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, is an animated short film about the curative power of story. Inspired, in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, “Morris Lessmore” ia a story of people who decote their lives to books and books who return the favor. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent film and MGM Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

About The New Orleans Opera Association & Opera On Tap
The popular Opera On Tap series originated in New York City. There are now chapters in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Atlanta, and Boston. Here in NOLA, the group performs regularly at The Inn on Bourbon, Rusty Nail, and Abita Brew Pub with annual appearances at the French Quarter Fest and the Steamboat Natchez.

The mission of the New Orleans Opera Association (NOOA) as adopted by the Board of Directors in April, 1992 is to provide the finest possible operatic performances within its means to the New Orleans Metropolitan Area, the State of Louisiana, and the River and Gulf Regions.

Grand Opera comprises broad historical, social and geographical events. It is the purpose of NOOA in producing opera to provide for the cultural enrichment of people of all ages without regard to their racial or ethnic make-up, or their physical or economic circumstances.

The goals of the organization are to plan, produce and present opera of the highest musical and artistic caliber, especially by drawing on Louisiana's abundant artistic talent to reach out to a broad public, educating them and developing in them a greater awareness of opera; to provide a statewide education program that includes live performance in the schools, a local student matinee of a mainstage operatic production, free public performances, and opera education lectures; to facilitate the attendance and comfort of individuals with physical and mental impairments; and to maintain the H. Lloyd Hawkins Scenic Studio as a local, national and international opera resource.

I am where you go in New Orleans to encounter over 4000 years of art.
Introduction

Welcome to the New Orleans Museum of Art

The New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), New Orleans’ oldest fine arts institution, opened on December 16, 1911 with only 9 works of art. Today, the museum hosts an impressive permanent collection of almost 40,000 objects. The collection, noted for its extraordinary strengths in French and American art, photography, glass, and African and Japanese works, continues to expand and grow, making NOMA one of the top art museums in the south.

The five-acre Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA is one of the most important sculpture installations in the United States, with over 60 sculptures situated on a beautifully landscaped site amongst meandering footpaths, reflecting lagoons, Spanish moss-laden 200-year-old live oaks, mature pines, magnolias, camellias, and pedestrian bridges.

This is your museum. We hope you will visit, and visit often.
