Richardson Society at Ogden Museum

The Richardson Society is an exclusive affinity group comprised of the Museum’s high level members, collectors and philanthropists. Members enjoy all benefits of a Director’s Circle membership plus a 10% discount for event facility rentals, and a variety of exclusive access activities including an annual art trip, annual Richardson Society dinner and an annual cocktail party.

Richardson Society membership is a way to experience shared passions for the visual and culinary arts, music, literature and all things cultural that comprise the Museum’s mission, and is vital in promoting the Museum to an expanded audience.

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art welcomes nearly 80,000 visitors through its doors each year and engages over 14,000 students, parents and educators for guided tours, family day activities, and teacher trainings. This connects our collections to more than 50 area schools, residents in each Louisiana parish and every state in the nation. More than 10,000 people each year enjoy Ogden After Hours, a weekly music series presented each Thursday evening with a performance, interview, educational activities, and museum exhibitions. Richardson Society membership supports all of these vital activities. We would be honored to have you join us!
