Taking inspiration from the Tiffany stained-glass windows commissioned by Josephine Louise Newcomb and displayed around Tulane’s uptown campus, Newcomb Art Museum has added a new twist to their annual Spring fundraiser by turning their Mother’s Day Brunch into a Mother’s Day Tiffany Tea.
On May 12 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., guests are invited to celebrate the special women in their lives – mothers, grandmothers, sisters, wives, daughters and friends – and support a treasured New Orleans institution at the same time by enjoying a delicious high tea service with sweet and savory treats and teas catered by the English Tea Room.
Taking place in Woodward Way, just outside the entrance to the museum, guests will sip tea while surrounded by two gorgeous examples of Tulane’s treasured Tiffany windows, Supper at Emmaus and The Resurrection. Singer-songwriter and jazz performer Sarah Quintana will accompany the event with a live performance.
At the conclusion of the tea, Tom Friel, the museum’s coordinator for interpretation, will lead guests on an engaging and in-depth tour of a selection of these Tulane treasures, many of which were originally installed in the chapel on Newcomb’s Garden District campus.
All proceeds from the ticket sales (which are discounted for museum members) will support the ongoing programs and exhibitions at the museum, helping to ensure that admission to the museum remains free to all. Tickets are available online. Seating is limited, so purchase your tickets early for this unique event!
