Opens Thursday, May 1

Six gloriously abstract bronze sculptures by the late artist Allan Houser go on exhibit at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art in an unexpected place. If you want to view them, you’ll have to go up. Allan Houser: On the Roof opens Thursday, May 1, at the museum, 415 Couch Drive, Oklahoma City. The bronze pieces, created between 1980 and 1993, show an artist exploring line and design as he created pieces inspired by not only by his Apache ancestry but the lives of people from other Native American tribes. The works go on exhibit on the OKCMOA Roof Terrace through July 27. For admission, museum hours and a schedule of related events, visit www.okcmoa.com.
