OHR O’Keefe Museum
Located in Biloxi, Mississippi, The Ohr O'Keefe Museum is a non-profit art museum and arts center dedicated to the late ceramics artist George E. Ohr. The museum is named for both Ohr and Annette O'Keefe, the late wife of former Biloxi mayor Jeremiah O'Keefe. Her name was appended to the museum in recognition of the family's ongoing contributions, which exceed 1.8 million dollars. The museum is designed by Frank Gehry Partners, whose work with Zahner in the past resulted in various high-profile architectural projects such as the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the Experience Music Project in Seattle, and the Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park, Chicago. Gehry met with Jerry O'Keefe in 1998, and agreed to design the new museum for Biloxi, Mississippi.
