One hundred years ago, the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) opened its doors to art enthusiasts and the general public alike after a $150,000 donation. Recently, the institution celebrated its centennial and reflected on its success as a mainstay in Louisiana, according to the Associated Press.

"It's great to have a world-class museum in our region," president of the Southeastern Museums Conference, George Bassi, told the news source. "And when you look at art museums in the southeast region, NOMA is one that comes to mind."

When NOMA originally opened to the public with funding from a local businessman, it only had 11 small paintings and artifacts. Since then, the museum has created a permanent collection of more than 35,000 pieces, including works by Picasso and Degas.

In honor of the centennial, NOMA will be hosting the "Great Collectors/Great Donors: The Making of the New Orleans Museum of Art, 1910-2010" show until January 23. It will showcase pieces that have been donated to the institution and recognize people who have funded NOMA throughout the years.

Competition among professionals in the art industry is expected to remain high over the next eight years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
