Ogden Museum’s Inaugural Magnolia Ball to Honor Mignon Faget

 The Ogden Museum of Southern Art is honoring Mignon Faget at the inaugural Magnolia Ball on Friday, June 20th.

The Magnolia Ball benefits the Center for Southern Craft and Design at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, which serves to highlight the artistic contributions of craft artists and designers from the American South.

 “The event itself is an opportunity to recognize the outstanding contributions of an artist who represents this important facet of the Ogden Museum’s mission and story of the American South,” says director William Andrews.

“In the inaugural year, it seemed very fitting to present this award to Mignon Faget, whose work is a stunning expression and celebration of this ideal.”
