Are there any quality art museums in the OkC area other than the Oklahoma City Museum of Art?

I can't think of one of the top of my head, but one place in the metro that has a good bit of quality art that no one thinks about is our State Capitol Building. They have a permanent gallery and usually a couple of halls with rotating art. One hall is rather hard to find but had some photos by Charles Ruston hanging in it at one time.

Of course you could come to the Paseo this wekkend and find tons of art and take some home with you.

If you like western art, the Cowboy Hall of Fame always has some good things on display.

Have already made plans to head down to the Paseo this weekend.

There are a few art galleries on Main Street in Norman and then there is the Art Museum at OU on campus.

There is an art gallery in Deep Deuce close to the railroad tracks.

Check out the Fred Jones Museum of Art on the OU campus, right off of Boyd Street. It has some excellent van Gogh's, Renoir's, Monet's, Rembrandt's, and other names you will know. In my opinion there is no other museum in the metro with a matched collection of fine art.
