Opening to the public on the evening of Thursday, November 16, the 110th anniversary of Oklahoma statehood, The Art of Oklahoma celebrates the Museum’s outstanding and diverse collection of art created by or about Oklahomans—and the cities and landscapes they call home. Featured alongside the works from the Museum’s permanent collection is a large oil sketch by major American regionalist painter John Steuart Curry depicting the iconic Oklahoma Land Run. Other artists featured in the installation include Oscar Brousse Jacobson, Nellie Shepherd, David Fitzgerald, and Woody Big Bow.
