The Firehouse Art Center in Norman is a non-profit community art center with an exhibition gallery and gift shop. Established in 1971, the Firehouse Art Center is the largest of the state's regional art centers devoted exclusively to visual arts through studio classes (offered for all ages five and above), workshops, special programs and exhibitions.

Housed in a former fire station, the Firehouse Art Center includes a clay studio complete with a fireman's pole, studios for jewelry, fiber arts, glass, drawing and painting. The gift gallery features unique items including turned wood, stained and blown glass, pottery, fine jewelry and much more. Art from both local and nationally known artists can be found in the gallery exhibits year-round. The Firehouse Gallery has been voted "Best Art Gallery" in Norman numerous times. Admission to the gallery and gift shop are free.

The Firehouse Art Center has also received numerous awards over the years for its annual Chocolate Festival, initiated in 1982, and its annual summer art fair which began in 1977. The Chocolate Festival has been highlighted nationally by Southern Living magazine and TV's Food Network.
