After months of watching a brick shell transform into space for creative play, the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa’s Hardesty Arts Center is about to open and become the Brady Arts District’s newest jewel. The grand opening weekend event is scheduled for 1-5 p.m. Dec. 16. Building tours will be offered along with live entertainment and activities everyone in the family can enjoy. Concept/OK, the first exhibition on display at the center, also opens and is presented by the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition. The new biennial feature exhibition presents a survey of contemporary art in Oklahoma and by Oklahomans. Approximately 40 artists are represented in multiple media, informing a fresh perspective of local, state and regional art to resonate with the new surroundings and purpose of the center: To make the arts and all its expression and benefits more accessible for youth and adults.
