OKC must place more value on land use and street edges


Blair Humphreys
For years, we have been trying to make downtown Oklahoma City a great place for people. This mission is reaffirmed and restated using a variety of catchphrases — “pedestrian-friendly,” “thriving urban center,” “24/7 community” — that all ultimately mean the same thing: a downtown crowded with people.

Freedom of Expression

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

There are few things we value more dearly in this country than the First Amendment (that is, of course, why it was the first). Freedom of Expression, a collaborative new exhibit by abstract painter Theresa Hurt and metal sculptor Basil Martin III, celebrates this idea with its thought-provoking interpretations. The exhibition opens Friday and runs through July 26 at In Your Eye Studio & Gallery, 3005-A Paseo St. Admission is free. Call 525-2161 or visit inyoureyegallery.com.

Friday–Wednesday, ongoing
