  • LED public art to shine at new convention center

    Two large glass atriums of the new convention center will feature huge LED light installations that will offer shifting displays based on a live feed from city data portals.

    The $1.3 million art installation will be visible from the street and adjacent Scissortail Park and is designed to present fluid and ever-changing movement.

    The artwork, dubbed Virtual Sky, was selected from 90 responses after the city issued a call to artists.

    Artists Susan Narduli and Tina Aghassian took inspiration from the Oklahoma sky and dynamic forces of nature, new technologies, and Oklahoma City aviation and aerospace.

    The lighting seeks to express shifts in the changing sky through technology and will be highly visible to convention goers inside the facility as well as those in the park.

    Funded by MAPS 3, the new Oklahoma City convention center is well underway just south of Chesapeake arena and will be complete in 2020.
