If you're a fan of abstract art, you'll love the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum's modern ceramics and sculptures. The campus was designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry and features several intriguing outdoor installations. The museum's founder, George E. Ohr, was known as the "Mad Potter of Biloxi" and many of his pieces are on display throughout the property. The museum hosts a permanent collection and showcases rotating collections of work as well, with everything from paintings and drawings to pottery and photographs on display.
But there's more to the Ohr-O'Keefe than ceramics and sculpture. Also on the premises is the Pleasant Reed Interpretive Center, where you can learn about the African American experience in Mississippi after the Civil War through the lens of the Reed family. Travelers say their experiences here were facscinating, citing the unique campus architecture and the variety of art on display as major standouts during their visits.
You'll find this special art house overlooking the Gulf from Beach Boulevard. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults with discounts for seniors and students; children younger than 5 enter for free. There are group tour rates available as well. Check out the museum's website for information on exhibits, special events and more.
