Ogden Museum of Southern Art

New Orleans, Louisiana

Housing a remarkably extensive and comprehensive collection the Ogden Museum of Southern Art embodies the visual heritage and history of the American South from 1733 to the present. It concentrates on visual arts of the American South and places that focus in the context of the region's history and culture. The museum hosted an exhibition on Michael J. Deas, a master realist painter and one of the premier illustrators in the U.S. The exhibition features six prints from the Smithsonian's National Postal Museum. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Museum hosted a series of teacher workshops organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
