NEW ORLEANS — For the third consecutive year, the Newcomb Art Museum at Tulane University won the distinction of Best Gallery Or Museum in Louisiana as well as one of the 25 best galleries and museums in the United States by the American Art Awards. According to the AAA the museum received the award because of “Newcomb Art Museum's profound legacy of education, social enterprise and artistic experience. Their exhibitions routinely awe, inspire and engage students and visitors. This is a rare art institution which has focused on the contributions of women to the fields of art and design."

"For the last 4 years, NAM has been consistently envisioning and implementing ambitious exhibitions by some of the best contemporary artists working today while also addressing themes that are incredibly relevant to our immediate communities," says Monica Ramirez-Montagut, the museum's director. "We are thrilled that the American Arts Award recognizes our vision and contributions to our region."
