A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT AND CEO

Dear Arts Enthusiasts,

This is a somber time for our great city. We send out our deepest condolences to those who have lost loved ones, and prayers to those who are taking care of loved ones who are ill at this time. To all those involved in the service industries in New Orleans—the front-line hotel, restaurant and grocery service people—please know that we see you, appreciate you and are praying for you. You are a huge part of what makes New Orleans so fabulous, and this city couldn’t make it without you. We are thankful for the helpers who stock and distribute the many food banks and to all of the angels who have stepped up to sew face masks and deliver groceries to our seniors and at risk individuals. And most of all, we send our love and strength to all our courageous healthcare workers, first responders and law enforcement officers. The word “heroes” seems incredibly inadequate, and we forever will be grateful for each of you.
