The Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art (OOMA) aspires to become the premier source of diversified and engaging art education for the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We see art as a road that leads to self-reflection, creative problem solving, and social change; it creates dynamic and profound interactions that shape personal identities and strengthens our Gulf Coast community. In order to expand our impact on school children and the local community, we make great efforts to keep our admission fees, membership dues and class tuition as affordable as possible through corporate sponsorship.
We are fortunate to receive widespread support from businesses and residents of the Mississippi Gulf Coast community and beyond. Through our fundraising efforts Bubbles & Bonbons: A Galentine’s Affair and Palate to Palette: An Evening with Robert St. John & Wyatt Waters, we have raised almost $20,000 for art education initiatives for the children of our community. Please join us in this effort and participate in future fundraisers!
