The Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art will host a daylong celebration marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of potter George E. Ohr today through 4 p.m. at its transitional home off Beach Boulevard in west Biloxi.

Visitors to the museum can see George Ohr pottery and the current Mississippi Clay Invitational exhibition, browse the Ohr gift shop and have free cake and ice cream, which will be served throughout the day.
