Ink Life Tour Comes to OKC

· No Comments

Do you love tattoos and tattoo culture?  If so, you’ll be very interested in the Ink Life Tour Tattoo & Music Festival.  It’s coming to the Cox Convention Center April 13, 14, and 15, and it’s bringing a lot with it!

The Ink Life Tour is the world’s largest tattoo and music festival (according to their promotional materials, anyway).  This three-day event is sponsored by the House of Pain Tattoo Studio in EL Paso, Texas, and will be visiting a number of other cities in addition to Oklahoma City.  They’ll be in Texas, Florida, Missouri, and Wisconsin.  In addition to many famous tattoo artists who are travelling with the festival, many of Oklahoma City’s top artists will be on hand, too.

It’s that time of year again: time for the Festival of the Arts!  This great event has been going on since 1967, and in a way, it’s not really spring here in OKC until the Arts Festival is in full swing.  This year, the festival will be April 24 through 29, and as always, it will be held at the Festival Plaza and Myriad Botanical Gardens in downtown Oklahoma City.  Admissions is free!  The festival opens at 11 a.m. each day and closes at 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.   On Sunday, the festival will end at 6 p.m.

The Disney Magic Comes to Oklahoma

· No Comments

Do you love Disney?  If you’re like me, some of your earliest childhood memories include watching Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, and Dumbo.  If you’ve got kids, you’ve probably introduced them to Belle, Mulan, and, of course, Mickey Mouse.  Disney fans of all ages will love the Disney exhibit currently being displayed at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art.

Entitled “A Century of Magic: The Animation of the Walt Disney Studios,” this exhibit is made up of over 80 animation cels.  The cels come from the private collection of Janis and Domer “Jay” Scaramucci.  It opened March 3 and will be on display through September 16.
