Jesuit is proud to announce that alumnus and faculty member Daniel Fitzpatrick ’09 has been selected as part of the New Orleans Museum of Art’s (NOMA) 2023–24 Creative Assembly Cohort. This year-long residency, designed to foster community engagement and collaboration, will see Fitzpatrick and other selected artists working closely with NOMA’s collections, exhibitions, and programs.

The Creative Assembly Cohort, made up of eight New Orleans-based artists, is a testament to the city’s vibrant cultural landscape. Fitzpatrick, known for his work as a novelist, poet, and translator, joins this diverse group of creatives who will be exploring various mediums including painting, music, literature, and performance. The program emphasizes the intersection of contemporary art and community engagement, reflecting the museum’s commitment to being a hub for artistic dialogue in New Orleans.

Redell Hearn, Chief Educator at NOMA, highlighted the significance of the residency, stating, “Each artist offers a new perspective on the creative expression of our city’s past, present, and future.”

The museum introduced the 2023–24 cohort at a NOMA at Night program this winter. This event was an opportunity for visitors to engage with the artists and learn more about their upcoming projects and collaborations with NOMA.

The Creative Assembly initiative, led by NOMA, underscores the importance of local artists in sustaining New Orleans’s rich cultural heritage. Fitzpatrick’s selection for this cohort shines a light on the diversity of strengths that he brings to the classroom at Jesuit.
