George Ohr scholar Kevin O’Brien: Art Cafe
November 1, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
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.
