Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art


The Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art will celebrate the birthday of its namesake George E. Ohr on Thursday, July 12, 2018. Nicknamed the “Mad Potter of Biloxi,” Ohr’s legacy lives on 100 years after his passing in the wild and wacky STEAMpunk Pottery Project performance by Bay St. Louis artist Steve Barney. Featuring “The World’s Most Amazing Pottery Machine,” Barney will hoist himself in the air and throw pots upside down. Moreover, Steve will use his head to mold and shape clay vessels, designed to inspire students and integrate Art with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). 

Food trucks available by local favorites: Pop BrothersEl Rancho Ocean Springs, and KnuckleHeads will be serving up delicious grub.

Enjoy free museum admission, $5 pinch pots, and exciting interactive art demonstrations with Steve. Museum operating hours will extend to 7:00 PM, with Steve’s performance taking stage from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.

This is an event you won’t want to miss!
