January Must-Dos

It’s a big, busy metro – here’s where to start



James Andrew Smith, “The Sun Will Always Sing of You”

 

► Fresh-Cut Creativity

Through its year-round exhibits, classes and workshops, Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center encourages artistic expression in all its forms … but as its name implies, its focus tends toward the innovative and progressive. That makes its annual preview and purchasing party ArtNow a great way to support the arts and stay current on top creators.

 


► International Flair

Travel broadens the mind, but so can letting the culture come to you: Armstrong is opening doors to Asia and Europe thanks to a visit from the Shanghai String Quartet and Wu Man (who’s master of a traditional instrument called the pipa), and the mighty Russian National Ballet Theatre, which will recreate the plains of Spain for “Don Quixote.” No passport required.

 


► Loud and Clear

Carrie Fisher has dozens of credits from TV and film roles, has written novels, memoirs, plays and screenplays and is a respected voice for mental health advocacy – she’s far more than cinnamon-roll hairpieces and a few iconic lines. On the heels of her latest book The Princess Diarist, the Junior League of Oklahoma City welcomes her voice as its Speaker in the City series returns.

 


► Shine On

Get your year off to a scintillating start by supporting a pair of the metro’s most outstanding creative foci: deadCenter Film Festival and the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition are the beneficiaries of the third annual Glitter Ball. The winter-themed, whimsy-laced spectacle makes Film Row the place to find lavish décor, premium bar concoctions, live performances and plenty of sparkling surprises.
