Special Exhibitions

The Oklahoma City Museum of Art presents two to three international and national traveling exhibitions and Museum-organized exhibitions in its galleries annually. These exhibitions feature a wide variety of subjects, styles, and media, ranging from the art of ancient Egypt to French impressionism to emerging contemporary artists.  Additionally, rotating exhibitions of the Museum’s permanent collection are regularly presented throughout the second and third floors, which are segmented into twelve galleries and feature both
temporary and permanent displays, such as "Chihuly Then and Now: The Collection at Twenty."

Children and youth

The OKCMOA Film Program is home to central Oklahoma's only community based, mission driven art house cinema that screens the finest independent, international and classic films in the 235-seat Noble Theater every Thursday through Sunday year round.  In addition to regular film screenings, the film program partners with organizations such as the Oklahoma Film & Music Office, deadCENTER Film Festival, Oklahoma Film Critics Circle, and the Circle Cinema in Tulsa, OK.

Population(s) Served

The vision of a permanent museum of art in Oklahoma City was realized in 1945, with the incorporation of the Oklahoma Art center (now the Oklahoma City Museum of Art).  The Museum’s collection of nearly 5,000 objects covers a period of five centuries, with highlights in European and American art from the nineteenth through twenty-first centuries, a growing collection of contemporary art, and one of the world’s largest collections of glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. In 2022, OKCMOA relocated its collection of Chihuly glass to the Museum’s first floor, offering visitors a reimagined experience in honor of the twentieth anniversary of the inaugural Chihuly exhibition.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

The Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s education program serves students of all ages in the community by providing engaging and enriching arts education experiences throughout the year. Education at OKCMOA
has three main areas of focus: Interpretation, which provides meaning for works of art and is delivered through gallery labels, didactic panels and gallery guides, and catalogs. Education, which complements formal, school-based curriculum for grades Pre-K through 12 and is delivered through docent-guided in-person tours and virtual field trips, led by a museum gallery educator.

In addition, the OKCMOA Yellow Bus Brigade busing sponsorships remove the financial barrier for school-age children to visit the Museum by reimbursing transportation costs as well as group admission fees. Public programs offer a variety of learning opportunities for adults and children of all ages.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

The Healing Arts Outreach Program at OKCMOA is dedicated to providing art education, enrichment in the visual arts, and a creative outlet to individuals who may not otherwise be able to experience the Museum due to health issues. This is particularly impactful to the audiences served, as this may be their only form of cultural engagement and hands-on exposure to the transformative power of art.
Making Memories is a program for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Held each month, this program includes free access to the Museum’s galleries and studios.
Since 2012, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art has offered monthly art lessons to children and teens at SSM Behavioral Health. A Museum teaching artist travels to each unit, bringing lessons that comply with Oklahoma Visual Art Standards and serve as an outlet for creativity and expression.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
