Art of Giving Holiday Shopping


Do you make shopping an art form? You can at the annual Art of Giving Holiday Shopping event on December 2 at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art / University of New Orleans! Located at 925 Camp Street from 6 – 8 p.m., get your holiday shopping completed while exploring the Ogden Museum of Southern Art’s Center for Southern Craft & Design. The Museum Store is also open, and they’re hosting the annual shopping extravaganza.

A live band and cash bar infuse a party environment into this artful night of shopping, and if you’re a museum member you can enjoy complimentary white wine all night long.
