All week

Artist Orly Genger created an installation at Oklahoma City’s Campbell Park, 11th and Broadway, out of 1.4 million feet of recycled lobster fishing rope and 350 gallons of terra cotta paint. The exhibit opened in October 2014 and was originally slated to close this week, but the exhibit has been extended through March 2016. “When visiting Oklahoma I was taken by the vastness of the open landscape and envisioned a line that would travel in a continual motion winding through the patch of land on which the work sits,” Genger said of the inspiration for the installation. The area’s red dirt inspired Genger’s choice of color for the installation. For more information on the exhibit, visit www.oklahomacontemporary.org.
