Oklahoma Outback: Art Road Trip Planner for Western Oklahoma
AIRS SEPT 1 & EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT IN SEPTEMBER
Few travel road trip itineraries, much less art-based ones, dwell much in Western Oklahoma. Alas. It’s where the plains take over, and the big skies loom – Route 66 is out here too. But art? Well, yes art. Of course, art.
Gallery America’s “Oklahoma Outback: An Art Road Trip of Western Oklahoma” aims to expand the notion Oklahomans, and anyone coming through, has a big region of the state where less than one-fifth of the people live. And it’s easy to find surprise and wonder once you get off the interstate. Here’s some of the places Gallery’s travel crew (Robert Reid and Jonathan Thompson) ventured to (and a few they haven’t reached yet) while researching this episode in the OETA #ArtVan.
