Ogden Museum of Southern Art
The Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, Louisiana is an amazing insight into the history and culture of the American South. Focusing on visual arts and culture, this amazing exhibit is based upon the original donation of over 1,100 works from the private collection of Roger H. Ogden and is associated with the University of New Orleans.
