“The city has just completed a year-long project to renovate the exterior of our building and we’re ready to celebrate,” said Janet Dyke, president of the non-profit Red Earth board of directors.

The Red Earth Art Center has been located at Santa Fe Plaza since relocating downtown from Science Museum Oklahoma in 2010. Red Earth is open weekdays free to the public featuring contemporary and historic Native art exhibits and a consignment sales gallery.

“We’re working to present some of the area hottest new young bands along with many of the most talented visual artists in the state during a fun, free and festive atmosphere,” said Dyke. “The popularity of the food truck scene in Oklahoma City has just exploded and is so exciting.

“When you combine the electricity of downtown Oklahoma City with the influx of young professionals moving to the city center our new event becomes the perfect opportunity to reintroduce ourselves to our neighbors,” she said. “We’ve scheduled our event when there are no OU or OSU games to conflict. So bring a lawn chair, enjoy the music, eat some great food and shop beautiful art.”

The Red Earth Art Center is open free to the public during Red Earth Rocks the Plaza. On exhibit, “Kachina from the Red Earth Collection,” features rarely exhibited Kachina figures from the permanent collection.

Red Earth Rocks the Plaza is presented by Red Eagle Construction. Red Earth, Inc. is an Allied Arts member agency and is funded in part by the Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department, and the Oklahoma City Convention & Visitors Bureau,
