  • Plans revealed for Oklahoma Contemporary Studios

    Steel is rising for the new home for Oklahoma Contemporary Art Center and now design plans have been revealed for studio space on that same campus at NW 11th Street and Broadway Avenue.

    An existing 9,839 square foot brick building located to the east of the main museum is set for an extensive renovation that will see it repurposed complete with a lighted outdoor sculpture gallery.

    Inside, features will include a weaving studio, sculpture work areas and a large ceramics area with indoor and outdoor kilns.

    Like the main building, the renovation was designed by Rand Elliott and will be constructed by Smith & Pickel Construction and calls for the building to be completely cleaned and painted with a new roof, windows and doors.

    The studios will host workshops, lectures, and classes for a diverse audience and complement the museum as part of the $26 million campus just north of Automobile Alley in central Oklahoma City.

    Work started in May and the center is set to open in 2019 and seeks to become a “creative commons” for the community to gather, create and experience art.
