A work of art

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 12:00:00 am

Art lovers rejoice! The 36th annual Arts Festival Oklahoma will take place Aug. 30 - Sept. 1 at Oklahoma City Community College. One of the top juried fine art and craft shows in the Southwest, AFO features works by hundreds of artists from 11 states who will be on-site to answer any questions you may have. With everything from hand-crafted jewelry to ceramics, photography, paintings, sculptures and more, there is sure to be something that piques your interest.

While you’re here, take in the sights and sounds as Oklahomans showcase their dance and musical talents throughout the festival. The Oklahoma City Philharmonic Orchestra will even hold a free public performance as part of the event. And no festival would be complete with scrumptious fare including funnel cakes, foot-long corn dogs, Mexican, Greek, German and other ethnic specialties.

Art lovers can kick off the weekend each Thursday at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Art After 5. Enjoy a beautiful ambiance and spectacular view of the Oklahoma City skyline from the Museum’s roof terrace. Live music is provided each week. The price of admission includes all museum exhibits, so be sure to check out Gods and Heroes: Masterpieces from the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris featuring 140 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper dating from the 17th through the 19th centuries. The museum also features its permanent collection of Chihuly glass in Illuminations: Rediscovering the Art of Dale Chihuly. The exhibit contains more than 80 pieces of unique artwork, making it one of the most comprehensive collections of its kind in the world.

No matter what your interests are, Oklahoma City offers something for everyone. Get out and explore each of the city’s districts; we promise you won’t be disappointed.
