Cake Walk

NoDef's King Cake Tasting Returns to Ogden Thursday



Carnival means parades and costumes and king cake lots of king cake. It’s hard to find a keg cake outside of the Gulf Coast, but we have enough options to fill in the quota for the rest of the country. With so many choices, it’s best to let the people choose. So, NoDef’s King Cake Walk will return to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art on Thursday (1.28) from 6p.m. to 8p.m. 


Magnolia Ball's Blossoms Bloomin'


Pollen isn’t the only thing in bloom this summer. Next Saturday (6.20), the Ogden Museum of Southern Art will play host to its second annual Magnolia Ball. The soiree, which benefits the Center for Southern Craft and Design, will honor southern artists. Like any proper NOLA party, the event will feature an open bar, two auctions and food from numerous vendors. 


Today in NOLA: 4.09.15


French Quarter Fest starts today. Later in the evening, Tricia Boutte plays after hours at the Ogden and there is a social bike ride. If you’re going to stay in and make groceries, be sure to stop by the farmers’ market. On this day in 1864, the Battle of Pleasant Hill led to a Union victory in Louisiana. Now, more to do this Thursday. 


Museum Pieces


Too much festing on your plate this spring? There is always art. The Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) are both gearing up for a couple annual events.

Here and Now

Visions of Southern Life and Histories on View at the Ogden



As a small-town hardware store owner in Georgia, Paul Kwilecki was perhaps an unlikely candidate for a fine-art photographer. But as the photographs in One Place demonstrate, Kwilecki's position as an artist is one of extended intimacy with his subject. Also on display this month: paintings by New Orleans artist Rolland Golden. NoDef's Liz Davas visits two current exhibitions at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and looks at how culture, race, and history shape the region's contemporary image of itself.


Today in NOLA: 9.4.14


Jazz in the Park kicks off its sixth season tonight with To Be Continued Brass Band and the Shannon Powell Band at Armstrong Park. The NOLA Project’s new production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest opens at NOCCA. Plus, a jazz trio at the Ogden and two more chances to check out restaurant-themed items from the vaults of the Louisiana State Museum. Get all the details for Thursday:
