Friday, Jan. 4
Don’t let the cold keep you from the exciting experience of discovering new art. Tulsa’s Brady Arts District and Oklahoma City’s Paseo Arts District open the doors to the public the first Friday of every month with exciting new works on exhibit by both established and emerging artists. The Paseo’s 17 galleries (including JRB Art at the Elms and Visions in the Paseo Art Gallery) are all within walking distance of one another, as are the growing Brady venues, which includes Living Arts of Tulsa, the Tulsa Artists’ Coalition Gallery, Tulsa Glassblowing Studio and the new arts centers at the Zarrow Center for Art and Education and Hardesty Arts Center. Many have opening night receptions on First Friday, which means, you’ll often enjoy meeting the artists, too. The Brady walk begins at 6 p.m. Friday. Stop at the local restaurants, pubs and bars for even more entertainment and activity. In Tulsa, crawlers can hop the downtown trolley and visit the other hotspots in downtown Tulsa. The Paseo walk begins at 6 p.m. Friday and lasts until 10 p.m. It continues Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. Think of it as an adventure, because with discovery, it always is.
