The Convocation Reception will be held at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art located nearby in New Orleans’ Central Business District. The Ogden Museum holds the largest and most comprehensive collection of art related to the American South. Attendees will be able to view the rotating permanent collections and the upcoming exhibition, “Profligate Beauty: Selections from the Collection of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art,” which celebrates the creative spirit of American Southern artists.  Drinks and appetizers will be served and the Ogden Museum Store & Center for Southern Craft & Design will be open for browsing and shopping.


Walking from the Hilton New Orleans Riverside: Shepherds will lead groups of 10-20 people to the museum between 7:00pm and 7:30pm. If you would like to walk to the Ogden Museum with a group, please congregate at the hotel's south side entrance after the Convocation ceremony concludes in the Jefferson Ballroom. The distance is approximately 0.8 mile.

If you would like to make use of this service, please sign-up in advance at the Registration & Hospitality Desk. The van pick up location is at the hotel's south side entrance.
