Historically, much of Oklahoma City’s art identity has been located in The Paseo Arts District, a small neighborhood just north of downtown with nearly two dozen working artists and studios, all of which are open the first Friday of every month—even winter months. Since the redevelopment of the urban core, though, visual arts are springing up all around downtown, both in the Arts District and in surrounding districts.
