OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you think the words “photo” and “slam” sound awesome together, that’s because they do. This nontraditional artist lecture will feature 12 Oklahoma photographers who have five minutes to explain their techniques. But they can’t go over the alotted time; otherwise, they get the gong. The event begins at 7 p.m. Thursday at Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s Noble Theater, 415 Couch Drive. Admission is free. Call 236-3100 or visit
