“Special surprises” will abound at this year’s “O What a Night Gala” for the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, on Saturday, October 26.
Co-chairs Dathel Georges and Katy Weil, along with Jacques Rodrigue, executive director of the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts, whose father, artist and philanthropist George Rodrigue, is this year’s Opus Award winner, promise the “event of the season with art, music and culinary talents that reflect the importance and influence of Southern culture across the globe.”
The gala will include live and silent auctions with art and artful objects from noted Southern artists, as well as a “special surprise” emceed by auctioneer CK Swett of Heritage Auctions of Austin, Texas.
Both the “amazing” entertainment featuring “special musical guests and a band of New Orleans All-Stars” and “award-winning” chefs are still surprises, but from 6 to 11 p.m. guests will enjoy all things Southern, as the museum continues its mission of “showcasing the diversity and importance of Southern art through exhibitions and education initiatives.”

For more information and to purchase tickets, call 539-9616, or visit OgdenMuseum.org.

Special thanks to Sue Strachan, public relations director of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
