Our thanks to everyone who made "Bon Anniversaire-Degas-175" such a fun and special day. In all, over 300 people attended the festivities at Degas House on Sunday, July 19.

Attendees included Council Member Jackie Clarkson, who honored Degas House with a proclamation from the city of New Orleans. The dramatic exhibit "Degas and New Orleans" was also unveiled in the South Wing of Degas House, 2300 Esplanade Avenue.

Special thanks to our event sponsors: Louisiana State Museum, New Orleans' Musicians' Clinic, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, Le Tourment Vert, W Hotel New Orleans, Daniel Esses, and the Backbeat Foundation.
