Making moves: Oklahoma Contemporary officially begins construction on its new art facility.

Oklahoma Gazette • April 27, 2018

The new art center at NW 11th Street and N. Broadway Avenue was designed by architect Rand Elliott and will be built by Smith & Pickel Construction. The new location expands Oklahoma Contemporary’s current exhibition space by more than 20,000 square feet, along with across-the-board structural and technological improvements.

When complete, the facility will positively impact Oklahoma Contemporary’s ability to fulfill its art and community mission, which is to “encourage artistic expression in all of its forms through exhibitions, education and performance.”

Davis said the new building does not fully alter its established mission, but it will grow it.

“I think our mission is evolving or expanding,” he said. “It’s not necessarily changing or moving in a different direction.”
