Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center

NW 11th and Broadway,
Oklahoma City, OK



Oklahoma Contemporary ignites creativity. An arts center for learning, their mission is to encourage artistic expression in all its forms through education, exhibition and performance. The museum focuses on living artists, the art of now and the art of what’s next and is committed to providing accessible, inclusive arts experiences for everyone. They host free exhibitions, events and performances year-round and offer low-cost, high-quality arts classes and camps for youth and adults. In spring 2020, Oklahoma Contemporary will open a spectacular new arts education and cultural resource on a 4.6-acre site at NW 11th and Broadway. In addition to providing a world-class facility for exhibitions, performance and education and a breathtaking addition to the OKC skyline, the new campus will become a “creative commons,” a place for community to gather, create and experience art. The Studio School will tell the stories behind the art of now and teach the skills to create what’s next. Incorporating programming from community partners, Oklahoma Contemporary will be a hub for artistic experiences of all kinds and offer the city an event space like no other.
