By Hudson, USA, February 2013

No reviews, be the first!

Though its name might sound funny, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art is a prestigious museum venerated throughout the South for its truly impressive array of Southern art – the largest collection of southern art in the world, in fact. Located on 925 Camp, just next to the famous Lee Circle in the Central Business District Downtown, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art is dedicated to educating and entertaining the public, all the while doing its best to preserve and foster southern art. If you’re in New Orleans, you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to see it.

With five floors of permanent and visiting exhibits, the Ogden Museum is a great bang for your buck at only a $10 entry fee.  Exhibits like PhotoNOLA and Shelby Lee Adams: Salt & Truth, you can expect an interesting and diverse glimpse into the cultures of the south. Consider it a crash course in the various demographics of the south, or simply a sweet walk through the traditions, hopes, dreams and desires of an often misunderstood and underrepresented  group of Americans.
