Celebrate and Support the Art of the American South

Ogden Museum of Southern Art, dedicated to broadening the knowledge, understanding, interpretation and appreciation of the visual arts and culture of the American South, will hold its annual O What a Night! Gala Saturday, October 15, 2022, along with a Patron Party and auction preview on Thursday, October 13, 2022. Join us at the O What a Night! Gala, which sells out every year and plays host to affluent and influential patrons from New Orleans and across the country. This evening is not only an experiential celebration of the very best in Southern art, music and food, but also provides critical funds for Ogden Museum’s award-winning educational programs and our dynamic exhibitions.

What makes this event so special? The people and the art! People from all over the country will be able to bid on works of art in the live and silent art auctions. Year after year, art collectors look forward to viewing all of the beautiful works of art created by artists of the South. More details to be announced!
