Support Our South Donate to Ogden Museum

Support Ogden Museum's Educational Mission

Ogden Museum of Southern Art relies on the support and generosity of the community to continue to present exhibitions and programming focused on sharing the art and culture of the American South. Please consider making a gift to support Ogden Museum’s educational mission. 

The Support Our South Fund was created in response to the pandemic’s impact on Ogden Museum. When we temporarily closed in 2020, we were deeply saddened, but within days we were already crafting a plan to present new and engaging educational programming, including online tours, artist talks, camps for kids, art classes, meditations and weekly art activities. Our efforts to reach the community remotely continue, and we have reached hundreds through the distribution of printed art activities throughout the city. Help Ogden Museum continue to engage people of all ages by making contribution to the Support Our South Fund today.


Ogden Museum now offers text to give! Text SupportOurSouth to 44-321 to make a contribution today.

You can also donate by mail by making a check out to Ogden Museum and sending it to 925 Camp Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130.
