Degas House on Esplanade Avenue in New Orleans has been pleased to host, in its grand parlors, "Dinner with Degas". This is a unique event held for the purpose of recreating for guests the Creole hospitality of Impressionist Artist, Edgar Degas, when he lived with his New Orleans family, the Mussons, in the 1870’s. Degas House endeavors to provide guests with the ambiance of a dining experience in a historical museum home, adorned with reproductions of paintings and sculptures of Edgar Degas. Degas House is the only home or studio in the world open to the public, making this event an entirely exclusive experience. In 1872 and 1873, Degas enjoyed with his family some of the same types of Creole foods prepared at this dinner. Today’s guests enjoy a true Creole experience with absinthe, food, music and conversation, all surrounded by the art and spirit of Edgar Degas.
