The Louisiana Museum Foundation (LMF) is proud to announce the 2023 Founders Ball V to open a new exhibition at the Louisiana State Museum (LSM) at The Cabildo entitled Hunt Slonem. This exhibit will present a retrospective that showcases the lifelong dedication of world-renowned artist Hunt Slonem to his legacy, his time at Tulane and how it deepened his connection to New Orleans, and his inspirational relationship with the state of Louisiana and how it has influenced his career. Founders Ball is the annual fundraiser for LMF. This fundraiser supports our work on behalf of the collections, exhibitions and educational programming of the LSM, which includes The Cabildo and Presbytere. Funds raised from this annual event support the creation and opening of prolific exhibitions such as Hunt Slonem, and will fund related educational programming throughout the year long exhibition running through September 2024. This annual event marks the fifth year of Founders Ball and is The Louisiana Museum Foundation and Louisiana State Museum's most anticipated and participated event of the year. Many of New Orleans most generous patrons will be in attendance to celebrate Bringing History To Life and the work of Hunt Slonem.
