Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art
The Museum’s collection of Ohr pottery was undamaged during Hurricane Katrina and was removed for further safe-keeping to the vault of the Mobile Museum of Art. We are most grateful to the museum staff and board for their generosity in sharing their facilities with us. As of August 16, 2006, George Ohr’s pottery came home to Mississippi! The collection will remain in a safe location in the northern part of the state until it can once again take up residence on the new, completed campus of the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art.
Books about Ohr, Gehry and ceramics, as well as the finest in original contemporary pottery, are available for purchase in the Museum's Store. While we are rebuilding, please check out the Museum Store online.
In addition, you can learn about the house that Pleasant Reed built; providing a rare opportunity to see how an African-American family with limited means lived in Biloxi during the early twentieth century.
