What to do in Oklahoma on Oct. 4, 2011: Take part in the new Art Moves program in downtown Oklahoma City
Today’s featured event:
Check out the new Art Moves initiative offering free, daily lunchtime arts programming to the downtown area from noon to 1 p.m. today at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Museum Cafe, 415 Couch Drive. For today’s Art Moves session, Mariachi Orgullo de America will perform acoustic mariachi music.
Presented by Devon, Art Moves is a project of the Arts Council of Oklahoma City, which is working with various locations, such as the Downtown Library, Leadership Square and the newly renovated Myriad Gardens, to host these events.
An emphasis will be placed on collaborating with the council’s downtown partners. This might include special boxed lunches from local restaurants, as well as events tailored to augment existing programming at each site.
Art Moves will consist of performances (think quartets, storytellers, and ballet troupes), artist demonstrations (a variety of mediums and techniques), short film selections, and artist/curator discussions.
A focus will also be placed on arts education, and each session will end with a Q & A session. Artists are given a unique opportunity, not only to speak of the creative process, but also to increase awareness and understanding of art to a larger audience.
The Art Moves initiative began Monday with artist Patrick Riley’s mask-making demonstration at Leadership Square.
