Book a tour to the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art and your group will get a glimpse into some of the Southeast’s most influential and intriguing artists, as well as a window to the cultural legacy of historic Biloxi. Our main focus is on the work of George Ohr, but rotating exhibits also offer examples of the work of contemporary southern artists. The Pleasant Reed Interpretive Center offers a unique opportunity to look into the life and legacy of emancipated slave Pleasant Reed as well as a chance to see the City of Biloxi as it was at the dawn of the 20th century.
We can work with your needs to develop the best plan for your group’s visit. We have planned everything from quick stop tours focused on a single aspect such as George Ohr’s Pottery to full day field trips with activities and lunches planned for groups of up to 100 visitors. A pottery wheel demonstration can also be scheduled to go along with your tour in which one of our professional potters will show your group how a simple pot is thrown on the wheel. We can also plan an activity for your group! Our most suggested activity is pinch pots. These pots are shaped by visitor’s hands, glazed, and fired in one of the kilns we have on campus. We’ll call you when you can come pick up your pots (shipping options also available)!
