Happy birthday to George Ohr, best known as the Mad Potter of Biloxi. Notorious for his eclectic character and a unique and unduplicated approach to pottery, George is turning 160-years-old today. The Ohr O’Keefe Museum of Art is throwing a birthday bash in honor of the artist and the public is welcome to come join the party and explore the museum’s exhibits, free of charge for today only. The official party kicked off at noon and the museum will close at five this afternoon. Natalea Thomson with the Ohr O’Keefe Museum of Art said, “Today is one of our free admission days. We have three of them every year. It also happens to be George Ohr’s birthday. So, like I said, it’s free admission. We’re gonna have games, a birthday cake, and an art project. Today is the perfect day to come take advantage of local art and history and George is a local celebrity and we’re just excited that he’s going to continue to get the recognition he deserves by having his own day.” Mayor Andrew 'FoFo' Gilich is on hand for today’s festivities. He’ll be proclaiming July 12th as George Ohr Day in Biloxi.
