On Thursday, Nov. 18, The Southland Music Line’s Stephen “Andy” Anderson visited the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi, Mississippi to photograph the beautiful campus grounds of the museum and its featured musical guest Symone French accompanied by Paul McDonald.
Located beneath majestic oaks on the beautiful Mississippi Sound, Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art features the pottery of George E. Ohr a.k a. “Mad Potter of Biloxi” (1857-1918), as well as contemporary and historic exhibitions.
The museum was designed by the famous architect Frank Gehry (subject of the 2006 documentary Sketches of Frank Gehry). Though Hurricane Katrina did considerable damage to the location, the project was eventually completed. The “stainless-steel pods located on the multi-building campus were designed to dance among the live oaks.
Some of the attractions located on the 4 acre campus: Gallery of African American Art, Pleasant Reed Interpretive Center, City of Biloxi Center for Ceramics and the John S. and James L. Knight Gallery – “The Pods”.
An added treat to visiting the picturesque museum campus was for Anderson to once again photograph the talented and always spectacular Symone French.
