For over 20 years, the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center has led the way in offering progressive and innovative art exhibits to the people of Oklahoma City. The showroom in Automobile Alley, constructed from four repurposed shipping containers, is temporarily housing exhibitions, events and an art library until ground breaks on a permanent campus on September 28. Adjacent to the showroom is The Campbell Art Park, home to impressive large-scale installations like Orly Genger’s “Terra” and Tomás Saraceno’s “Cloud City.” The new Guerilla Art Park, also located outside the showroom, features a 7-foot-tall T. rex and other unique iterations of outdoor sculptures.

As part of its mission of artistic enrichment, OCAC offers a variety of classes and workshops at its State Fairgrounds location, from pottery to painting to weaving and more, available for both adults and children. Free family make and take workshops are offered the second Saturday of every month, allowing for a fun way to share a love of art with the whole family. Plus, exhibits in the Eleanor Kirkpatrick Gallery are always free and open to the public.

And together with Marfa Contemporary and Green Box Arts, OCAC is part of ArtDesk magazine, a bi-yearly print publication devoted to the contemporary arts in all shapes and forms. Published by the Kirkpatrick Foundation, ArtDesk is available at local retail locations and can also be downloaded online.
