Support Our South

During its temporary closure, Ogden Museum remained committed to its staff. From home, the Museum team worked collaboratively to share the art and culture of the American South through dynamic online programming and engagement opportunities. This would not have been possible without the support of the organization’s Board of Trustees, faithful partners and generous donors. The public can support Ogden Museum with a donation to the Support Our South Fund.
