Louisiana Contemporary Presented by Regions Bank

On Whitney White Linen Night, August 1, 2015 the Ogden Museum of Southern Art will open the 4th iteration of its annual Louisiana Contemporary Exhibition. Louisiana Contemporary presented by Regions Bank is a statewide, juried exhibition organized by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Established in 2012, this annual event promotes contemporary art practices in the state of Louisiana, provides exhibition space for the exposition of living artist's work, and engages a contemporary audience that recognizes the vibrant visual culture of Louisiana and the role of New Orleans as a rising, international art center. Our 2015 Juror is Brooke Davis Anderson, Executive Director of Prospect New Orleans.

Hurricane Katrina Digital Memory Bank Project

In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, in collaboration with the Hurricane Digital Memory Bank, will present an opportunity for members of the community to document and preserve their individual Katrina experiences. Beginning August 1, 2015 through August 31, 2015, those affected by Hurricane Katrina are invited to respond to the prompt “Ten years later I still remember_____” at computer stations located in the Ogden Museum’s Circle Gallery. All statements will be included and archived in the Hurricane Digital Memory Bank. Alternatively, participants will have the option to record their stories on paper and included in an exhibition of collected memories installed on the walls of the gallery.
