George Ohr scholar Kevin O’Brien: Art Cafe

November 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Art Café, a new series of informal artist talks, debuts this fall with programming inspired by the exhibitions Mississippi (September 15–December 9, Corridor Gallery) and The Third Poetry: The Transcendent Art of Walter Inglis Anderson (October 27 January 27, 2019). Guests are invited to discover the rich cultural and diverse artistic heritage of the Mississippi Gulf Coast through stimulating presentations and in-depth conversations.

George Ohr

The series launches with a discussion led by noted George Ohr scholar Kevin O’Brien, executive director of the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi, Mississippi. Ohr, the self-identified “mad potter of Biloxi,” is considered an early leader in the modernist movement. O’Brien discusses the eccentric artist’s life, work, and influence on 20th and 21st century art.
