O·kla·ho·ma. The four-syllable name carries a cadence as melodic and soothing as the whispered legends and tranquil scenery that lie within its state lines. The Sooner State’s pioneer heritage still lingers in its vast skies, wide-open prairies, scenic byways, and old dirt roads that stretch into the horizon, and its illustrious Native American and cowboy traditions vigorously carry on. Given the state’s treasured landscapes and celebrated legacy, it’s not surprising that Oklahoma artists are inspired to create. In the following pages, discover what moves these painters and sculptors, and discover the soul of Oklahoma.
