Oklahoma City Receives Grant for Comprehensive Public Art Master Plan

Oklahoma City Receives Grant for Comprehensive Public Art Master Plan

Oklahoma City continually makes efforts in planning and implementing ways to develop the city and enhance the life of its citizens. Through major projects, different parts of the city have been enhanced not just physically, but also economically. Economic projects improve the livelihood of the city, while aesthetic beautification creates an attraction for tourists.

To incorporate and introduce art and culture to the community, a Cultural Plan was recently established, which includes a comprehensive public art master plan. The Cultural Development Corporation of Central Oklahoma (CDCCOK), consisting of local corporate, non-profit, and government leaders, has developed a master plan that would integrate art into public places to add beauty throughout the area and create an awareness of the beautiful culture of the city.

Because of its comprehensive public art master plan, CDCCOK will receive a $50,000 Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). The Our Town Grant is one way for NEA to show their support to art projects in cities throughout the country that make a difference.

CDCCOK plans to use part of the money to hire a consultant for developing an Art Ordinance for the city.
