Ohr-O'Keefe Museum seeks volunteers for Katrina exhibit

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The Ohr-O'Keefe Museum in Biloxi is about to hold its largest exhibition ever, and it will need hundreds of volunteers.

Starting in March, the current exhibits will come down, and all the galleries will be featuring displays that commemorate the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

The museum will be open seven days a week for more than five months. The staff is seeking volunteers, or Katrina Ambassadors, to greet the thousands of visitors and help make sure the exhibits are safe.

"This is a new thing for us, so we're going to need volunteers to help us man the galleries as gallery attendants," said the museum's executive director Kevin O'Brien. "We're going to have all kinds of programming that's going on with that at the museum and also off site at the Civic Center and the Saenger Theatre."

The "Katrina Plus Ten" exhibition will be up from March 21,  through Sept. 12. If you'd like to volunteer, just call the museum at 228-374-5547
