Really intriguing, diverse and well-curated exhibits which certainly challenged whatever limited ideas I had about "Southern art". The size of the museum is exceptionally comfortable and there's a great view from the deck upstairs. A very enjoyable afternoon!

I like the Ogden Museum of Souther Art because it is small enough to visit thoroughly without getting exhausted or "saturated" and, more importantly, the focus of Southern Art makes the collection interesting and, in a sense, educational. For a brief visit to New Orleans, this museum is probably not a "must see" attraction (unlike the WW II Museum and the French Quarter etc.); however, for visitors who will be in New Orleans for a few days, the Ogden Museum would be an interesting addition to their sight-seeing agenda.

A great small museum, doable in an hour or more with cutting edge art from the south. Some of the art is traditional representational (photos, paintings) and some is more abstract. The temporary exhibits have always been interesting.
A bonus, or lagniappe, is the Thursday evening concerts, held in the lobby, with local music that you can dance and drink to.

Attended a Halloween party at the CAC Sheds across the street. This venue hosts a great place and carries on the warehouse feel and decor of the neighborhood.
