Home for the Holidays 2021

12/22/2021 06:30 PM - 11:55 PM CT





The NOCCA Foundation, the The Times-Picayune | New Orleans Advocate, and the family of Daniel Price invite you to Home for the Holidays on December 22, 2021 at the House of Blues New Orleans. This year's event will once again be in-person at its traditional home, the New Orleans House of Blues, located at 225 Decatur Street.

Home for the Holidays is a night of spectacular art and music benefiting the Daniel Price Memorial Fund for Aspiring Artists, which honors the memory of NOCCA alum Daniel Price (Visual Arts, 1993). The fund was established following Daniel's death at the age of 28 while protecting his wife from an assailant. Daniel's fund is part of the NOCCA Foundation's Student Success Program, which provides NOCCA's young artists with year-round support for training, supplies, and college scholarships.
