Selections from the Permanent Collection of the Ogden Museum are currently installed on the third and fourth floor of Goldring Hall. Ranging from 19th century Bayou School landscapes to Vernacular Art, these exhibitions celebrate the depth and breadth of the Museum’s holdings.
This exhibition draws from the Ogden Museum’s growing collection of Self-Taught, Outsider and Visionary art to celebrate the creative spirit and intuitive vision of the American South’s Vernacular artists. Artists represented include Minnie Evans, David Butler, Clementine Hunter, Lonnie Holley, Eddy Mumma and many others!
The Center for Southern Craft and Design presents the multi-media sculptural work of Margarita Cabrera who lives and works in El Paso, Texas. Focusing on social-political community issues including cultural identity, migration, violence, inclusivity, labor and empowerment, Cabrera creates sculptures made out of mediums ranging from steel, copper, wood, ceramics and fabric.
The Ogden Museum is proud to present an exhibition of the works of American Abstract Expressionist artist, Dusti Bongé. This exhibition brings together works from throughout her career to tell the story of one woman’s fierce dedication to a creative life, culminating in a body of work that stands testament to her strong contribution to American Art after World War II.
