Opened in 2003, the New Orleans Museum of Art's (NOMA) internationally acclaimed Sculpture Garden contains 63 striking examples of 20th and 21st-century sculpture, including works by Leonard Baskin, Deborah Butterfield, Barbara Hepworth, Jacques Lipchitz, Henry Moore, Claes Oldenburg, Auguste Rodin, and George Segal. Free to visitors, it provides an opportunity to experience fine art in a relaxed and informal setting. Lash, curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, NOMA, presents the first catalog of the collection to contain in-depth entries for each of the Garden's pieces. Each entry includes discussion of the piece and background on the artist's life and career. The catalog is illustrated with full-color photographs. Distributed in North American by ACC Distribution. Oversize 10x12.25".
