Oklahoma Contemporary’s Learning Gallery is a space to connect curiosity, creativity and contemporary art. Activities are designed for people of all ages to learn about works of art from the exhibitions through participating in a hands-on way. The Learning Gallery creates experiences where visitors can make meaningful connections amidst activities that include reading, writing, making and using critical thinking skills.
The Not For Sale Learning Gallery focuses on the four elements of hip hop: graffiti, DJing, emceeing and breaking.
Hip hop is about self-expression. Visitors can use chalk to create their own personal backdrop with words and images, then take selfies using the HALO photo booth. They can contribute to our masking-tape mural, learn how to create their own handstyled graffiti or color tags from Not For Sale artists. Little hands can practice their DJ skills on our mini mixing machine.
Visitors can also grab a book or an iPad and cozy up in our Learning Lounge to learn more about graffiti culture and the elements of hip hop.
