Artful holiday

Continuing

The holidays mean that many families get more time to spend together. All that togetherness, however, can sometimes feel like too much. When that happens, check out what the Oklahoma City Museum of Art has installed. Two new exhibits present some of the coolest and most imaginative contemporary works you’re likely to see anywhere. Chuck Close: Works on Paper displays work by the American painter and photographer, but viewers will get a good sense of his printmaking abilities here with an assortment of portraits. The exhibit ends Feb. 16. Come on Down by Lisa Hoke is a mounted wall frieze spanning 150 feet and made of common everyday materials arranged in surprising ways. Who knew paper cups and candy could look like this? The exhibition runs through April 13. The museum is located at 415 Couch Drive, Oklahoma City, and is open daily except on Christmas and New year’s Day. See a schedule and more at www.okcmoa.com.
