Campbell Art Park is a destination for community interaction, art education and exhibitions. Oklahoma Contemporary began programming the three-block city park in 2014, an advance look at what our new facilities, soon opening just to the east, will offer at NW 11th and Broadway.
Made of 1.4 million feet of recycled lobster-fishing rope and painted with 350 gallons of terra cotta colored paint, Orly Genger’s Terra weaved its way through the park’s center section from October 2014 to April 2016. Tomás Saraceno’s Cloud City reflected, refracted and rearranged the skyline of downtown Oklahoma City in the fall of 2016. Erwin Redl’s Whiteout, a grid of 550 suspended LED bulbs, was an incandescent treatment of urban public space across the dark fall and winter of 2018-19.
In April 2020, in conjunction with Oklahoma Contemporary’s inaugural exhibition, Bright Golden Haze, Jen Lewin’s Aqueous will engage visitors as they walk along its surface -- lighting up as they step, run, jump or play along the pathway.
Campbell Art Park is an integral part of Oklahoma Contemporary’s new home, allowing us to actively engage the community outside our doors.
