A nice collection of modernish southern art, heavy on the impressionist influenced work of Louisiana artists. Loved the special exhibits "Precise Vision," "Salazar: Portraits of Influence," and Doris Ulmann: fromt eh Lowlands tot eh Highlands."

New Orleans has a great art and museum district near our hotel. Right across from the World Ward 2 museum is this excellent Ogden museum of Southern Art. Worth the trip.

New building to show mostly modern Southern art. Few great pieces. contemporary exhibits are interesting. You end up comparing very known artists with the regional ones

The museum is very small, but it does have two floors of that I liked, one was the architecture information and the other the history of the families of New Orleans. The rest of the floors looked like it was not enough art to display,...More

ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
