New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) says
The NOCCA Institute's 2016 ART&SOUL gala features the theme "Home Is Where The Art Is". Accordingly, the event will welcome home a host of alumni, who'll entertain guests with outstanding performances all night long. As usual, ART&SOUL will also feature great food from local restaurants and one of the city's best auctions.

This year, ART&SOUL will be held on a Saturday -- Saturday, May 21, to be exact -- and we're adding a late-night party for night owls, younger alumni, and friends of NOCCA. The event is co-chaired by Celeste Marshall and Calvin Johnson Jr., and the schedule is as follows:

PATRON PARTY: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Tickets: from $250 (+ 5% Louisiana sales tax and online ticketing fee, if applicable)
The Patron Party features performances by Calvin Johnson Jr. and Roxie Le Rouge, a special Patron Party buffet, and open bars throughout the building. Patrons also get a first look at dozens of silent auction items up for bid, including artwork, vacation packages, gift certificates to local restaurants, and much, much more. Patrons are welcome to stay for the ART&SOUL Gala and the Twilight party, too -- including the live auction, which features a week-long stay in Tuscany, a whirlwind trip to New York, and a beautiful bracelet with white sapphires and black spinel from Ramsey's Diamond Jewelers.

ART&SOUL GALA: 8:00pm - midnight
Tickets: $100 (+ 5% Louisiana sales tax and online ticketing fee, if applicable)
