We’re guessing that patrons of the Oklahoma City Museum of Art have thoroughly enjoyed having a section of their prestigious art institution transformed (temporarily) into a playhouse for the imagination. OKC loves a rodeo, even one straight out of cubist’s dream. That’s Halo Amok, an enormous puppet installation that lets visitors tug a few ropes to see what happens. If you want to see Wayne White’s exhibit, you have through Oct. 6 to check it out at 415 Couch Drive. If you wish to see the puppet master and artist in action, you’ll get the chance when White stops in at OKCMOA for a live performance. “Yer Supposed to Act All Impressed” happens at 7:30 p.m. at the museum’s Noble Theater. Tickets are $10, but if you’re a museum member, admission is free. White will also visit with audiences at two screenings of “Beauty is Embarrassing,” the whimsical 2012 film documentary about his life, family and work. Screenings are at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 30, and Saturday, Aug. 31. For more, visit www.okcmoa.com.
