Downtown OKC The award winning Downtown Oklahoma City Underground is preparing to become an even more colorful place.  The Invited Artist Gallery in The Underground opens a new exhibit “Spectrum”; an exhibit that defines the colors of the rainbow.  The show opens with a public reception on Thursday, October 23 from 5 – 7 pm and runs through January 5, 2009.  

“Spectrum” features surprising art by 18 artists. Each artist created works that focus on a certain color– red, purple, indigo, blue, green, yellow and orange. Visitors to the gallery will see the colors organized in order of the color spectrum down the 80’ hall. Artwork includes paintings, photographs, collages, and more. The show is sponsored by Devon Energy. 

Already an aesthetic experience, The Underground is the renovated Conncourse. Architects from Elliott + Associates transformed the space with ambient lighting, clear directional signage, and, now, artwork exhibitions.  The project has garnered numerous international design awards.  The Invited Artists Gallery sits underneath the intersection of Robinson and Robert S. Kerr with entrances from all adjacent buildings. The show and opening reception are free and open to the public.
