An event is going on downtown right now which as far as I can tell has not been covered by the press, ArtTrain USA, a touring art exhibit train featuring cutting edge Native American Art/Artists. See Artrain USA: Welcome Aboard Artrain USA! ( for more about the tour. Locally, the event is sponsored by the American Indian Cultural Center & Museum. It is free, lasts for another day or two, and opens again in Norman on November 30.

The reception last night was in the Santa Fe Depot and I got my 1st real look at the very nicely done renovation. Small versions of most pics in my blog post are shown below ... larger versions are in my blog post at Doug Dawgz Blog: ArtTrain USA ( .

I noticed the train sitting up there at the station the other night. How did the press miss this?

Good question ... maybe those in charge didn't communicate well, I don't know.

I've located this additional link at the AICCM website ... ... containing additional detail about times, images & videos.

Good post Doug. I imagine the press missed this just like they virtually missed the touring 9/11 memorial that was here last week and went virtually unnoticed.

It turns out that there was an Oklahoman article ... I just flat missed it ... on November 18: ... a nice article by Shoshana Wasserman.
