I'm a member, but I live in Seattle. That should tell you something about how I feel about this museum (my only museum membership). When you hear the phrase "Southern Art" it isn't gothic plantations and dead white settlers (there is some of that), but...More

This museum is a museum of Southern Art in a very broad and unspecified sense. South of the Mason Dixon Line? Southern Hemisphere? You can find examples of both. Some of the rooms had fairly clear wall texts; others had pretentious statements. If I had...More

The Ogden has a small but interesting contemporary collection. Focusing solely on Southern Art, we were shown some familiar names but also to many new artists I will be following up on. At $13.50 a person it is only for the serious art lover.

This museum has interesting work by Southern Arts whose voices are now part of the conversation on the Southern art world. If you don't like or understand modern art, then this small collection is not for you. One exhibit,The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp,...More

This was a wonderful find and some really interesting pieces in the collection. Not for all tastes, but definitely worth the trip. Space is well laid out and art displayed beautifully.

When you enter and pay the--steep--admission price, you are standing in a soaring light filled atrium with a 40 foot high artwork as company. You have now seen the best the museum has to offer. The rest of the collection is arranged in an odd...More

The Ogden has a small but very satisfying collection of Southern art, comprised of pieces from a variety of periods, styles, and media. The entire collection can be reasonably viewed in about two hours, although of course your mileage may vary. At the time of...More

The Ogden is fairly average as far as art museum go. I saw a few people commenting on a reduction in the number of collections that were open on their visit, but it is now fully open. A good chunk of it is made of...More

Changing exhibits make this an annual visit. Great permanent collection of pottery and glass. The O offers exhibits with different media, often of outsider art, which get you thinking about life and living and social justices and injustices. Great gift shop. Always check to see...More

Arts District / Warehouse District
Once a thriving industrial zone, today this district
is home to a buzzing arts scene with an amazing
assortment of galleries, boutiques, and studios having
moved in and set up shop throughout the disused
warehouses for which the area is so well known. Much
of the art you'll come across here is local in scope,
ownership and inspiration. However, among the many old
brick warehouses are modern structures of steel and
