Piercing the Inner Wall: The Work of Dusti Bongé

Ogden Museum of Southern Art
Getting there
925 Camp St, New Orleans, LA

Today is the opening day of Piercing the Inner Wall: The Work of Dusti Bongé. Widely considered to be the first Mississippi artist to work consistently in a Modernist style, this exhibition brings together works from throughout Bongé’s career – from both private and public collections – to tell the story of one woman’s fierce dedication to a creative life, culminating in a body of work that stands testament to her strong contribution to American Art after World War II.   /// Dusti Bongé, Infinity (detail), 1980, Oil on Masonite, Collection of Paul Bongé
