OKCMOA
THE ART OF LIGHT 


The Oklahoma City Museum of Art's satellite exhibition, The Art of Light, is now open. Inspired by the exploration of light as a tool to create space, this exhibit seeks to communicate the unique visual experiences provided by different forms of light when they are employed to achieve artistic ends. 

As you plan your visit to see the current exhibitions at OKCMOA, please note that masks are now required when visiting the Museum. They are available for purchase if you do not have your own. All staff will be wearing masks, and all interior doors will be propped open to limit high-touch areas.

Learn more about the exhibit and museum safety measures at okcmoa.com.
CHICKASAW BRICKTOWN BALLPARK
BEST OF THE BALLPARKS


Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, home of the Oklahoma City Dodgers and professional baseball, has won the 2020 Triple-A Best of the Ballparks competition presented by Ballpark Digest.

The contest involved all 30 Triple-A teams in a bracket-style competition staged over a span of approximately four weeks between June 18-July 10. Winners each round were determined by popular vote through the publication’s website. Thank you to those who supported the ballpark by participating in the voting process, and congratulations to the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark!

Although the 2020 Minor League Baseball season is canceled, Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark will remain a hub of activity throughout the year.

CARPENTER SQUARE THEATER
LIVE ONLINE 


While Carpenter Square Theatre has canceled the remainder of its 36th Season, it is still in the business of entertaining and enriching the community! The theater will present  “CST LiveOnline!” on July 17 and 18 at 7pm. The broadcast will include "Who's On First?" and an episode of "Gracie Takes Up Crime Solving."

The show will air live on the theater’s YouTube channel, and an archive video of the broadcast can be seen later at the viewer’s convenience. Viewing is free, but the theater appreciates donations.

SUSTAINABILITY + PRESERVATION PLANS

The Oklahoma City Planning Commission has formally adopted preserveokc, Oklahoma City’s first historic preservation plan, and adaptokc, the first sustainability plan. They were presented to the City Council in July as amendments to planokc, the comprehensive plan that shapes Oklahoma City’s future development.

“It’s fitting that these two plans were presented together, because our history informs our plans for the future,” said Planning Director Geoff Butler. “These plans, which represent years of hard work from staff, stakeholders and volunteers, will help decision-makers continue moving Oklahoma City forward long into the future.”

The plans are long-range policy documents to guide decisions based on community goals. They are not regulatory documents or ordinances.


Learn more about each plan and read the full story at okc.gov.
SCISSORTAIL PARK UPDATES

All Live from the Lawn concerts have been canceled for July and August. However, instead of promoted events intended for large gatherings, Scissortail Park will feature solo artists and small groups from the Okie All Stars original lineup. Guests that are already in the Park on select Friday nights will be able to discover and enjoy these amazing local artists.

Additionally, the Myriad Botanical Gardens has made the decision to cancel this annual SONIC Summer Movies series due to COVID-19 concerns. The movies had moved to Scissortail Park for more room however due to a spike in numbers we determined this is the best course of action to take for the safety of our visitors, vendors, and staff. 


To learn more information about the park and available activities, visit scissortailpark.org.

A special meeting of the City Council will be held virtually this Friday at 1pm. An ordinance will be introduced requiring masks to be worn in indoor public places. Read the agenda here.

Restrictions issued two weeks ago on bars, restaurants, and theater-style seating still remain in effect.
