Featured alongside the works from the Museum’s permanent collection is a large oil sketch by major American regionalist painter John Steuart Curry depicting the iconic Oklahoma Land Run. Other artists featured in the installation include Oscar Brousse Jacobson, Nellie Shepherd, David Fitzgerald and Woody Big Bow.

In 1968, the Oklahoma Art Center, OKCMOA’s predecessor, purchased the 150-piece permanent collection of the Washington Gallery of Modern Art, the first art museum in the nation’s capital dedicated to the collection of contemporary art. That decision proved deeply consequential for the Oklahoma City arts community, first as it led the Art Center to divide into two separate art museums that were not reunited until 1989, and today as it ensures that this city maintains major collections of Abstract Expressionism, Post Painterly Abstraction, Color Field Painting, and Pop Art. “The New Art: A Controversial Collection Fifty Years Later” honors this extraordinary collection on this milestone anniversary, presenting longstanding Museum highlights by Ellsworth Kelly, Richard Diebenkorn, Grace Hartigan, Sam Gilliam and Robert Indiana, among many others. Also included are more rarely shown examples from Morris Louis, Juan Gris, David Smith and Kenzo Okada. In this collection of 20th-century masterpieces, museum-goers will discover the history of one of the nation’s most important modern art institutions and will be reintroduced to the “new art” that has lost none of its power to challenge, enlighten and confound 50 years later.

Twenty-six years ago Calm Waters began as an outreach component of INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center. Sondra Woodruff’s husband died in his sleep, leaving two children to raise- Jenny and Jason. At 9-years-old, Jason watched a program about a children’s grief center in Oregon, which provided grief support groups to children and their families. After his father’s unexpected death, Jason wondered why there wasn’t a place for grieving children in Oklahoma. He wanted a place where he could share his feelings with others also on their grief journey. Because of one child’s grief for his father and the desire for a safe place for others on their grief journey, Calm Waters was born.
