Our mission is to enrich lives through the visual arts
The Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s roots trace to early statehood efforts of the Oklahoma Art League and Art Renaissance Club, organizations concerned with art education for a young city. Over time, more formal efforts began with a Works Progress Administration (WPA) Experimental Gallery, which was open to the public. The Museum transitioned from a federally funded gallery to a private institution when it was incorporated on May 18, 1945.
Centre Bistro draws inspiration from the historic Centre Theater. Centre Bistro specializes in lunch, light bites, coffees, wine, beer, and cocktails. The restaurant offers counter service with open seating, including the dining room and patio.
