Alabama-born New Orleans artist, Michael Meads, is featured in a new exhibition at New York's ClampArt, aptly titled Kids Behaving Badly, where he shares the walls with Larry Clark, Nan Goldin and Mark Morrisroe, among others. Michael is a great supporter of the Ogden and our mission. Due to a recent donation of Michael's paintings, drawings, and photographs, the Ogden now holds the complete Eastaboga series, as well as a sampling of every phase of his career from his very first snapshots to his large detailed drawings set in the French Quarter.
