Bright Golden Haze: Reflections exhibit opens
June 15, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
The Oklahoma History Center (OHC) is proud to announce an invitation from Oklahoma Contemporary to participate in a multi-organization collaboration exhibition entitled Bright Golden Haze: Reflections. This exhibition is created in conjunction with Bright Golden Haze, the inaugural exhibition at Oklahoma Contemporary. The OHC outdoor installation will open to the public on June 15 and remain on display until August 15.
Oklahoma Contemporary is an organization founded over three decades ago to encourage artistic expression in all its forms through education, exhibitions, and performance. Recently, Oklahoma Contemporary announced the opening of a spectacular new arts education and cultural resource center on a 4.6-acre site at Northwest 11th and Broadway in March 2020. To celebrate the opening, Oklahoma Contemporary has invited 13 local Oklahoma City organizations to collaborate on satellite installations, exhibitions, and performances in conjunction with its inaugural exhibition. These collaborations have been generously funded through a series of grants from the Kirkpatrick Family Fund.
Bright Golden Haze: Reflections takes on the theme of the role of light as a medium and an inspiration for contemporary artists, and the 13 collaborating partners are interpreting this curatorial framework in a variety of ways. The Oklahoma History Center’s contribution to this effort will be a 600-foot maze of yellow fabric meandering across the grassy grounds of the OHC.
