NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Ogden Museum is postponing its annual O What a Night! Gala from Saturday, Oct. 17, to Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022. After much consideration and in light of recent city-wide recovery efforts due the impact of Hurricane Ida, the Board of Trustees, Gala Committee and Museum Staff have rescheduled the celebration in favor of the city’s continued recovery efforts post Hurricane Ida and for the arts community, hospitality partners and patrons to fully recover.

Since 2004, O What a Night! has been an annual event to celebrate the art and artists of the American South while raising money for Ogden Museum and its educational mission. This year Ogden Museum is proud to honor Sally Mann, an internationally recognized American photographer from Lexington, Virginia, with the annual Opus Award, given each year to a member of the arts community whose life’s work constitutes a major contribution to the cultural landscape of the South.

Ogden Museum would like to thank O What a Night! sponsors, benefactors, patrons and participating artists for continuing to support this event, which is the Museum’s largest fundraiser. Tickets that were originally purchased for the Oct. 17, date will be applied to the Jan. 15, 2022 event date.
