A Night to Honor Roger Ogden

Join the Hilliard Art Museum as we transform the main exhibition gallery into the beauty of a Louisiana landscape for one night only. Enjoy an evening with local entertainment and special guests to welcome Roger Ogden home and honor his philanthropic contributions and his legacy as a collector of Southern art. Our 2023 Gala at the Museum, A Night to Honor Roger Ogden, will take place on Thursday, January 19, 2023.

The evening will include cocktails, seated dinner by Chef John Folse, and an opportunity to preview the exclusive exhibition, Envisioning the South: The Roger Houston Ogden Collection. The Hilliard Art Museum will host a symposium titled, Southern Aesthetics and Connoisseurship: In Conversation with Roger Ogden the following morning. This special event is an opportunity to further the museum’s educational impact – funds raised will support the creation of an art annex, educational classrooms, and a café in the historic A. Hays Town-designed building adjacent to the Hilliard Art Museum.
