The New Orleans Museum of Art is set to host a special panel discussion, “Photography at NOMA: Past and Present,” from 5 to 9 p.m. this Friday, Jan. 17, in connection with its ongoing Friday Nights at NOMA music-and-art series.

The discussion will feature museum photography curator Russell Lord in conversation with six of its previous photography curators. The latter include: Ron Todd, Tina Freeman, Nancy Barrett, Steven Maklansky and Diego Cortez and NOMA Director Emeritus E. John Bullard.

The discussion will involve the museum’s current “Photography at NOMA” exhibit, which closes Sunday, January 19, 2014.
