    That was some preliminary underground work being done by the city.

    Drove by today. Still no activity. Wonder if they're short on funding?

    Yeah, the city did some prep work a few months ago and now absolutely nothing has happened.

    Concerning.

    The center has raised nearly 75 percent of the funds for Folding Light, and 60 percent of the $26 million needed for the entire project. Plans are to open in fall 2018.

    Probably still just fundraising.....

    Right, but strange they did a formal groundbreaking and the construction company set up a webcam, then nothing.

    Drove by today for a closer look. Easements have been market with red flags and white flags. Don't know how long they've been in place but they appear to be new.

    They are doing some utility work here but not sure when construction will start in earnest.

    Construction fence is up, they've demolished the paving and old parking and quite a bit of utility work has been performed as this project finally is moving forward.

    Would be great to see this building next to it become something.

    This is still my favorite project in OKC. When the construction is complete, do they have plans for the land where the "placeholder" museum? With the museum complete, that land would be perfect for an event center/restaurant.

    All plans show that spot as just vacant land. However the old warehouse to the east will be renovated as part of this project.

    For some reason I thought this was going on the smaller lot where the placeholder is. I guess this one is better, but even more annoyed about Rand's push back on the Broadway apartments. Do we know if the old Saxum space is spoken for yet? I never thought much about how that place looked on the inside, but having toured their new space, I gotta think their old space is pretty cool as well.

    Huge public art display coming to Automobile Alley

    Oklahoma Contemporary Museu, with a temporary showroom on-site and their permanent new home well under construction, is set to bring a large-scale public art display to a neighboring park in Automobile Alley.



    The project will be the third in a succession of large displays in the Campell Art Park near Broadway and NW 12th by the museum, following Orly Genger's Terra and Tomas Saraceno's Cloud City. Both brought a large number of visitors over extended runs.

    Soon, artist Erwin Redl will execute Whiteout, a massive installation that was first commissioned by Madison Square Park Conservancy in New York. Redl has done other instllations around the world.



    Whiteout will stretch 40 feet by 80 feet and will be 12 feet high. A huge overhead structure will be erected with hundreds of suspended light globes which will illuminate the ground in a distinctive grid and move with the wind.

    Installation is planned for this fall.

    this will perfectly illuminate the empty dealership across the street. Too bad the main facility will not be completed then - would make fore a perfect foreground for pictures.

    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.
