As the school year ends, education doesn't have to! The Helis Foundation's "Art for All" program is the perfect way for Louisiana families to experience New Orleans' cultural instructions for free.

The program runs throughout the year and includes designated free admission days to the New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans Botanical Garden at City Park, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and Contemporary Arts Center. The Louisiana Children's Museum has also been added and will be open for free admission on the second Sunday of every month beginning June 13 (the museum reopens Saturday, May 29).

"We strive to make art more accessible to the Louisiana community, with a focus on relieving the barrier of cost," Jessie Schott Haynes, Managing Director of The Helis Foundation and Adore 2020 A-Lister, said in a statement. "With summer approaching, Art for All is a fantastic program for families who are looking for activities around the city, especially as our public indoor spaces are safely re-opening."
