A new, original exhibition of photographs by iconic sports photographer Walter Iooss Jr. will open March 5, 2022 at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. The Perfect Shot: Walter Iooss Jr. and the Art of Sports Photography includes over 80 photographs spanning 50 years of Iooss’ career.
Ed Ruscha, Robert Indiana, and Andy Warhol will be the focus of a new Pop Art gallery on the second floor of the Museum, opening on January 30, 2022. Two newly acquired lithographs by Ruscha will be featured – Boom Town (2020) and Turbo Tears (2020).
Perception and Technique in Abstract Art presents longstanding Museum highlights by Sam Gilliam, Thomas Downing, Helen Frankenthaler, Sam Francis, Ellsworth Kelly, Gene Davis, Paul Reed, and Victor Vasarely.
In the spring of 2019, we reopened our second-floor galleries with an exciting new presentation of our permanent collection. Headlining this reinstallation is the Museum’s latest acquisition, Kehinde Wiley’s monumental new portrait Jacob de Graeff (2018) from the artist’s Kehinde Wiley: Saint Louis exhibition. Wiley’s extraordinary painting anchors a new portrait gallery that also features works by Anthony van Dyck, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and George Bellows.
