Ogden Museum of Southern Art to Host Ogden After Hours
Featuring Rahim Glaspy
(New Orleans, LA) – On Thursday, December 14, Ogden Museum of Southern Art will host Ogden After Hours (OAH), featuring Rahim Glaspy. Taking place from 6 to 8 p.m. the evening will have live music, art activities for kids, a mini pop-up art market and food for purchase from Sira Tacos.
Rahim Glaspy, a New Orleans native, is a seasoned actor, host and accomplished musician. Rahim has been acknowledged for his “commanding presence” by nola.com and recently made his Kennedy Center debut with his band Water Seed. When he isn’t bringing the house down at JazzFest, he is supporting local artists around the city and advocating for the preservation of New Orleans music culture.
“It is an honor and privilege to be performing at Ogden Museum of Southern Art’s Ogden After Hours,” states Rahim Glaspy. “My dream as a New Orleans native is to perform on every stage New Orleans has to offer. Thank you, Ogden Museum, for presenting me with this opportunity, I couldn’t do it without you.”
In addition to the live music, an art activity table will be available for kids in the Museum’s Education Gallery. The activity will be based on Besty Stewart’s Bivoverse #3 painting, which is currently featured in the Museum’s exhibition, Knowing Who We Are.
Ogden After Hour attendees are encouraged to Shop the South while at the Museum. Local artisans will be onsite selling their crafts, which can make as wonderful holiday gifts.
