Mississippi’s ‘Mad Potter of Biloxi’ Was Ahead of His Time — But Only He Knew It


On the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi, Mississippi:
“Known as “The Mad Potter of Biloxi,” Ohr helped spearhead the abstract expressionism movement — but not until after his death. OOMA is a remarkable celebration of an artist who never felt fully appreciated in his own lifetime. “I have a notion that I am a mistake,” he wrote, but added, “When I am gone, my work will be praised, honored, and cherished. It will come.”
