Art in the South
Recent Acquisitions and Projects
The Ogden Museum of Southern Art/University of New Orleans, will open its new exhibit, Art in the South: Recent Acquisitions and Projects, featuring newly acquired work from the ever-expanding collection of the museum. The show debuts with an opening reception on Saturday, April 6 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. and runs through June 14, 2002 at the Museum's temporary gallery located at 603 Julia Street.
The exhibit also showcases the Museum's community outreach program Artists and a Sense of Place. The program, a partnership initiated by The Ogden Museum of Southern Art with New Orleans public schools McDonogh 15, Craig Elementary and Guste Elementary, pairs students with artists who live and work in their neighborhoods. Together they explore a "sense of place" with the final class project featured in this exhibition.
Jose Torres Tama will be featured now through April 11. Elizabeth Shannon will exhibit April 15-May 9 and Jeffrey Cook will be from May 13-June 14. Works by these nationally recognized artists are featured in The Ogden Museum's permanent collection.
