The Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art is a fitting tribute to Mississipi's legendary and eccentric potter - George Ohr. Having fallen prey to the damages of Hurricane Katrina, this museum picked itself quickly and continues to keep alive the undying spirit of the city's art-lovers. While the permanent collections and traveling exhibitions are sufficiently impressive, it's their events calendar which keeps the crowds pouring in. Art discussions, outdoor festivals and even black-tie gala parties are eagerly awaited and attended by all. Check website for details.
