Rep. Lee Denney speaks with Jim Tolbert and James Pickel at OK Arts Day 2014

Oklahomans for the Arts and the Oklahoma Arts Day Committee invite arts and cultural heritage supporters from across the state to join together in the Capitol on May 5, 2015 to deliver a unified message to our Oklahoma legislators: Arts and culture is a public good that benefits the entire state. The arts and culture sector develops communities, improves education, and grows the economy.

More than 40 arts and cultural heritage organizations from across Oklahoma will host exhibits in the 4th Floor Rotunda in a show of support for arts funding and arts education policy that legislators provide. Last year, more than 400 people from every corner of the state attended the event.
