The Great Families of the Gulf Coast Campaign

Is yours one of the families whose legacy will be honored in the Great Families of the Gulf Coast Gallery?

The Great Families of the Gulf Coast campaign is intended to fund completion of one of the Frank Gehry designed galleries in the John S. and James L. Knight Pod Pavilion. The gallery will become the permanent home for the museum’s vast collection of George Ohr pottery.

This ongoing campaign also seeks to strengthen the bond between the museum and the community which it serves. The museum is asking 500 great Gulf Coast families to contribute $1,000 each for the completion of the gallery. Contributions will not only ensure the legacy of the museum but also of the great families that make up the cultural identity of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Contributors will receive public recognition, acknowledgement at the grand opening of the gallery, and their name’s inscription on the gallery’s floor in perpetuity.

The video below was shown during the presentation which details the inspiration behind the campaign and its connection with the history and preservation of the region.
