  • I love the Ogden museum of southern art! I visit here all the time whenever I come to New Orleans. They are a decent size museum- not too small but not too big and overwhelming. Their focus on southern art is appreciated as it is clearly underrated. all the art labels are super informative and thoughtful and includes a silhouette of the state the artist is based in which is pretty cool. Barbara D came along with me to see the recent self taught artist exhibition and it is incredible!!! “100% must see!” We actually bought two catalogues on this subject before we left. A must visit locally conscious and critical experience 5 stars all the way! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Also this location takes the AAM membership card for two 👍🏼
  • We are glad that we chose this as our FIELD TRIP SITE! As the pics reveal, our GMCA Cadets really enjoyed themselves! This was our 1st VISIT to the museum, but surely NOT our last! We're looking forward to our NEXT VISIT! #NOLA4LIFE💯😁
