Oklahoma City Museum of Art
The Oklahoma City Museum of Art is one of the leading arts institutions in the region. The Museum presents a dynamic range of exhibitions organized from prestigious museums and collections throughout the world. The Museum’s own diverse collection features highlights from North America, Europe, and Asia, with particular strengths in American art and postwar abstraction. The permanent collection also boasts one of the world’s largest public collections of Dale Chihuly glass, a major collection of photography by Brett Weston, and the definitive museum collection of works by the Washington Color painter Paul Reed.
The museum also boasts the region’s premier repertory cinema, which screens the finest international, independent and classic films. Inside the 250-seat Samuel Roberts Noble Theater, visitors will find that the museum has incorporated the original 1947 Centre Theater into a visual masterpiece featuring a state-of-the art projection system. The theater is home to the museum’s film program, which offers screenings every Thursday through Sunday.
Inside the theater lobby, be sure to take note of the Waterford crystal chandelier, which is one of two Chihuly Waterford crystal chandeliers in the world. This stunning piece is comprised of 203 individual blown lead crystal parts, each etched by Waterford artisans. The chandelier is 9 feet, 7 inches in height, 5 feet, 5 inches in diameter and weighs 2,000 pounds. It may be viewed from the ground floor or from the mezzanine, which overlooks the theater lobby.
In addition to the Museum Store, OKCMOA is also home to the Museum Cafe. The Museum Cafe offers French-inflected Modern American Cuisine that is quality focused, artfully inspired, and approachable. The Cafe offers a full menu for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch that changes seasonally; as well as a carefully curated wine list, an offering of artisan beers, and classic seasonal cocktails. This downtown jewel is a place where friends from near and far can come together to celebrate the best things in life: art, food, creativity, culture and community.
For a unique nightlife experience, head to the Roof Terrace of the Oklahoma City Museum of Art on the Third Thursday of the month. The Roof Terrace is a gathering place for downtown workers, adventurous suburbanites, pre-concert and filmgoers, and the art crowd. Located atop the three-story Donald W. Reynolds Visual Arts Center, the Roof Terrace offers a spectacular view of downtown Oklahoma City. (weather permitting)
