Besthoff is the former K&B drugstore king, whose donation of more than 40 contemporary sculptures forms the core of the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden. The garden opened in City Park in November 2003; Sawyer/Berson Architecture and Landscape Architecture of New York City and Lee Ledbetter Architects of New Orleans collaborated on the six-year project for the New Orleans Museum of Art.
