“It's awesome. I'm smiling ear to ear. I walk in and I see everybody's piece and just everybody representing themselves, but we all come together and represent Oklahoma,” he said, standing under the massive and realistic rendering of a snarling gorilla.

“It's an amazing thing that the Oklahoma Contemporary has done for us where we could come in and actually paint on their walls. It's just amazing. I love it.”
