What's Up in the 405




 


Curiosity Fest

Saturday, Oct. 20

Learning should be a lifelong process – and though the world is way too vast and complicated for a one-day event to address every interesting topic under the sun, Oklahoma Humanities is giving guests an amazing amount to think about in this collection of knowledge, viewpoints and fascinating stuff. Appearances by Mark Twain and Will Rogers, group discussions on the intersection of religion and politics, a live recording of a “Game of Thrones” podcast, competitive book pitches … and it all concludes with a keynote address called “Gut Churn” examining the creative process, by NPR’s Jad Abumrad, founder of “Radiolab.”


Time for Three

Thursday, Oct. 18

One for the money, two for the show, three for an even better show. That’s the plan at Armstrong Auditorium, which is kicking off its 20th anniversary performing arts season with a guest performance from the string ensemble and self-described “classically trained garage band” Time for Three. Bach, bluegrass, The Beatles – it’s all up for grabs thanks to their wide range of arrangements.


Silver Soiree

Friday, Oct. 19

This weekend, the FJJMA is inviting guests to visit a version of the ’60s – sleek and sophisticated, but teeming with spies. The museum’s Sandy Bell Gallery is being transformed into an immersive, espionage-filled environment for enjoyment, with food, drinks, celebration and even a very good cause back here in the real world: Funds raised will help upgrade the museum’s accessibility equipment, including updated wheelchairs, gallery stools and assistive listening devices.


Art on Tap

Friday, Oct. 19

The traditional gift for a 15th anniversary is something made of crystal, and the more modern option is a watch … but in this case, the present is another round of celebration with more than 80 varieties of beer to sample. Food from excellent local restaurants and live music help round out the atmosphere, and the proceeds help maintain the museum’s ongoing slate of special programs and exhibitions. Bottoms up!


A Night in the Life

Friday, Oct. 19

Considering that this fundraiser is thrown by and benefiting the Oklahoma History Center, it’s even more appropriate to call it a blast from the past. Swing over to “1940s Flyboys and Riveting Gals” for an evening of live entertainment and big band music for dancing, plus heavy hors d’oeuvres and period-inspired cocktails, a more relaxed Officers’ Club area and a photo booth where guests can insert themselves into WWII-era propaganda posters. Brace yourself for some boogie-woogie.


Celebracion de la Cultura Latina

Saturday-Friday, Oct. 20-Nov. 2

Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center is presenting three exhibitions that showcase Latino culture: photographer Chris Ortiz’s wide-ranging “Portraits of Latinx Identity,” colorful prints by L.A.-based community art center Self-Help Graphics and local artists’ submissions to a Dia de los Muertes show. The trio of exhibitions runs through that holiday, but Saturday’s opening is a great time to visit, because the opening day features complimentary food and drink, drop-in studio activities, story time, student and professional mariachi performances, the Yúmare Folkloric Dancers and a special musical set by local singer/songwriter Lincka.
