Essence of Biloxi Driving and Bicycling Trail – Stop #12
Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art
Designed by famed architect Frank Gehry, the museum houses the unique pottery of George Ohr (1857-1918), who has become known worldwide. Ohr, the self-proclaimed “Mad Potter of Biloxi,” created his “mud babies” with local clay in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The museum is host to different art collections and art educational programs throughout the year. Gehry’s vision of the buildings “dancing in the trees” is evident as the pods seem to sway among the magnificent oak trees on the property.
The eastern boundary of the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum property is officially the western boundary of Point Cadet.
