Weekly Arts & Entertainment Highlights (Aug 12, 2011)

This weekend brings a good number of arts and entertainment opportunities, as well as a celebration of the life of an influential member of the Oklahoma City Arts community.

Individual Artists of Oklahoma opens “A Retrospective of the Work of Tom Lee” this Friday. Lee’s contributions to the arts made up quite a list. He was the driving force behind the Paseo Arts District and was an inspiration to many through his success as a professional photographer and a renovator of buildings in spite of an automobile accident that left him a quadriplegic. Lee died last year at his home. The opening reception starts at 6:00 p.m.

The young artists who took part in the Firehouse Art Center’s Children’s Summer Art Program will display their work this Friday during their Art Show opening reception.

For artists looking for studio space, Friday’s offerings also include a launch party for a new creative environment “The Society”. The event features live local music, live painting with OKC based artists as well as local food trucks.

If you’re in Blanchard this Saturday, Bluegrass bands from across the state will stage at Blanchard’s Lions Park for the 1st Annual Bluegrass Festival. And for those who want to improve their finger pickin’ chops, catch the numerous bluegrass workshops given from 9:00 to 11 a.m.

This Thursday through Sunday, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art holds screenings of “Vidal Sassoon: The Movie”. The film takes an intimate look into the life of the man considered to a “rock star” of the hairstyling world.

And for jazz that weaves through blues, funk and reggae, Stillwater’s Flatland Travelers continue the Sunday Twilight Concert Series at the Myriad Botanical Gardens.
