Known as the "Mad Potter of Biloxi”, many of George Ohr’s works are on display at the Ohr-O'Keefe Museum. These pieces include his earliest works as well as his more recent creations, including portraits and landscapes. Frank Gehry designed an award-winning campus of intriguing and intertwined buildings.
