Bright Golden Haze: Reflections

The Oklahoma History Center has been invited by 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 outdoor installation at the Oklahoma History Center will be on display from June 15 to 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 at Northwest 11th and Broadway in Oklahoma City. To celebrate the opening, Oklahoma Contemporary invited thirteen local 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 thirteen 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. The installation will include three interactives highlighting images from the musical Oklahoma!
