Ogden Museum of Southern Art
Ogden Museum of Southern Art Review
Art by Southerners, art made in the South, art about the South, artistic explorations into Southern themes, and more fill this Smithsonian affiliate's elegant building. The basis of the museum's permanent collection are 1,200 works collected by local developer Roger Ogden since the 1960s. It has now grown to more than 4,000 pieces, including paintings, ceramic, drawings, sculpture, photographs, and design. These pieces, along with special exhibitions, showcase artists from Washington, D.C., and 15 Southern states spanning the 18th–21st centuries. A central stair hall filters natural light through the series of galleries, and a rooftop patio affords lovely views of the surrounding area. The gift shop sells logo items, crafts by Southern artists, and books and movies celebrating the South. Thursday nights (6–8) come alive with Ogden After Hours, featuring live music, artist interviews, refreshments, children's activities, and special gallery exhibitions.
