Celebrate and Support the Art of the American South

Ogden Museum of Southern Art will host its annual O What a Night! Gala in-person and virtually this fall on Saturday, October 16!

Now in its 16th year, O What a Night! continues to honor the diversity and dynamism of art from the American South and recognizes Ogden Museum’s mission to expand knowledge of regional artists and culture.

On this special night, Ogden Museum will honor two individuals who have contributed greatly to the health and vibrancy of the arts community with the Museum’s OPUS Award. Previous recipients of the OPUS Award include artists Lonnie Holley, John Alexander, George Dureau, Lin Emery and George Rodrigue; community activist Fran Villere; and noted collectors and philanthropists Pamela J. Joyner & Alfred J. Giuffrida, William S. Arnett and David Kerstein.

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 auctions. Year after year, art collectors look forward to viewing all of the beautiful works of art created by artists of the South.
