Ogden After Hours, managed by Michael Paz, Concert & Film Coordinator, has promoted the music, visual arts and culture of the American South since the Museum opened in 2003. The series primarily features musical entertainment, but also showcases film screenings.
In line with the Museum’s focus on promoting the culture of the region, Ogden After Hours incorporates informational interviews at 7 p.m. every Thursday. This portion of the evening allows the audience to learn about the band or filmmaker. Another educational component of the evening is the children’s guided art activity inspired by Southern artists. Kids and adults alike enjoy making collages, sculptures, drawings and other creative works of art.
In addition, Ogden After Hours guests enjoy book signings, plus various food and shopping pop-ups and a cash bar.
“With Ogden After Hours, we aim to highlight the diverse music of the South,” says Michael Paz, Concert & Film Coordinator. “We are excited to bring back the interview segment, which gives guests the chance to know more about the artists we are presenting.”
