The Ogden Museum of Southern Art announced today the artists who have received awards as part of Louisiana Contemporary, the Museum’s annual juried exhibition featuring work by contemporary artists from across the state. Each year, with support from The Helis Foundation, the Ogden Museum honors four of the presenting artists, highlighting some of the most provocative and compelling works in the exhibition. This year, the lead award, The Helis Foundation Art Prize, which comes with $5,000, has been given to artist Jessica Strahan, whose most recent paintings explore the African diaspora within the context of life in New Orleans. Artists Sarrah Danziger, Thomas Deaton, and Rachel David were also recognized for their exceptional work.
