From the moment you step into the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, it’s hard not to be in awe of its grandeur. A 55-foot Chihuly tower in the Museum’s atrium serves to welcome visitors, but that is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to what OKCMOA has to offer.
In addition to boasting one of the world’s most comprehensive collections of Chihuly glass, OKCMOA also offers a varied and spectacular selection of permanent and rotating exhibits.
We can’t wait to test our skills of deduction at the Intent to Deceive: Fakes and Forgeries in the Art World exhibit. More than 60 works by some of the world’s most notorious con artists will be displayed alongside actual works of art. Bring your best sleuthing skills. We bet you’ll need them.
Where can you see images of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jack Nicklaus, figure-skating Olympic gold medalist Dorothy Hamill, boxing icon Muhammad Ali and O. J. Simpson all portrayed in classic Andy Warhol style? Where else, but OKCMOA, of course. The striking works found in Warhol: The Athletes offer an interesting perspective on athletes and something you certainly don’t want to miss.
Grab some friends and head out to Art After 5. The weekly event, held each Thursday, offers a fun way to unwind from a busy day, socialize and enjoy great works of art all while enjoying a spectacular view of downtown.
