Oklahoma History Center to Host the"Art of the Oklahoma Judicial Center" Book Signing

Oklahoma City – The Oklahoma History Center will host the official unveiling and book signing for "Art of the Oklahoma Judicial Center," photographed by Neil Chapman and written by Gayleen Rabakukk in collaboration with Justice Yvonne Kauger, Kyle Shifflett, Debby Williams and Justice James Edmondson, on November 20, 2014, at 5:30 p.m., at the Oklahoma History Center located at 800 Nazih Zuhdi Dr. in Oklahoma City.

The inspiration for this work came after Justice Kauger toured the Oklahoma Historical Society's collection of paintings, sculptures, textiles and pottery. She chose a number of works "not only for their beauty, but for the stories they tell," Kauger said. "Each one relates to the history of Oklahoma and the judiciary." The collection includes the work of local artists and photographers such as Bert Seabourn, Jeri Redcorn, Matthew Bearden, Patrick Riley, Jennifer Hustis and Mike Larsen.  The authors and a number of the contributing artists will be in attendance to meet the public and sign copies of the "Art of the Oklahoma Judicial Center."

This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and reservations are required. For more information on this event or to reserve a seat, contact Nicole Harvey at 405-522-5202 or email nharvey@okhistory.org.
