The Oklahoma City Museum of Art (OKCMOA) is Oklahoma’s largest museum, with a diverse collection spanning five centuries of art history. The Museum is particularly strong in American and European Art from the 19th and 20th centuries, with a large holding of glasswork by American artist Dale Chihuly.
The Donald W. Reynolds Visual Arts Center has been the home of the OKCMOA since 2002, when it opened after a long period of expansion and renovation. In addition to three floors of galleries housing the Museum’s collection, the Center contains the Museum School, Noble Theatre, and the Museum Café. The Noble Theatre incorporates the original Centre Theatre (dating to 1947), which is the home to the Museum’s film program and a noted public repertoire film theatre. Screenings are offered every Thursday and Sunday year round.
The Museum School offers classes for children and adults in the creation of visual arts, in a wide variety of media. Classes can last from one day to several weeks, and always include time spent in the galleries of the OKCMOA. Additionally, the Museum’s roof terrace is open to the public on Thursday evenings (May-October) for “Cocktails on the Skyline”, with a $5 admission for non-members.
