Art History

Oklahoma Contemporary's grand opening marks a new chapter for the arts in Oklahoma and beyond

You've been waiting patiently, and now the moment is finally here.

The new Oklahoma Contemporary opens its doors to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, March 13. The excitement kicks off with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring Oklahoma City dignitaries along with friends, family and supporters of Oklahoma Contemporary — just the right amount of pomp and circumstance to mark this historic moment for the arts in Oklahoma and beyond. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Your new arts center will be celebrating in style all weekend long with tons of free special events, tours, artist demos and more.

What can you expect opening weekend? For starters: art — and lots of it! We'll be offering first looks at our inaugural Bright Golden Haze and Shadow on the Glare, each exploring light, space and landscape. Our exhibitions team has been hard at work putting together these dazzling collections of works by international and Oklahoma artists, and this weekend will be your first chance to experience them.

The Oklahoma City Streetcar will run for free all weekend to celebrate, so hop off at our Art Park location on Broadway Avenue and beat the crowds in the parking lot. However you get here, we can't wait to welcome you to your new arts center in downtown Oklahoma City.
