Ohr-O’Keefe museum seeks ‘Katrina ambassadors’

The Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art is seeking volunteers to help greet visitors to a huge Hurricane Katrina-related exhibition opening at the museum in March.

During the exhibit, which will run from late March to Labor Day, the museum will be open seven days a week: Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, from 1 to 4 p.m.

“This is going to be the largest and most involved exhibition ever undertaken by the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art – in terms of its size, scope and community engagement,” said Ohr executive director Kevin O’Brien. “We’ll be announcing details toward the end of February, but right now we’re signing up volunteers, or ‘Katrina ambassadors,’ to help greet the thousands of visitors we expect to host at this exhibit.”

Those interested in volunteering – volunteers must be at least 18 years old — should contact Rhea Miner at visitorinfo@georgeohr.org or (228) 374-5547.
