Oklahoma City Closes 56th Annual Festival of the Arts

Oklahoma City concluded the 56th Annual Festival of the Arts. The popular event is known as the Rite of Spring at OKC. This year, the festival was expected to welcome 750,000 people. It was six days full of art, music, food and strong winds, but families and artists said they were already looking forward to being back. White tents covered downtown OKC and the festival hosted 140 artists, 140 musical performances and 27 different food vendors. Hundreds of people stopped by and learned about Oklahoma’s art scene. The artists said it was an event they strive to attend every year. The food is excellent. The art is awesome, it’s fantastic. Mine is fine, but it’s amazing,” said artist Tim Kenney. “Even today the weather was intermittent, it rained a few times. We moved all our paint, we closed the cabins a few times, but right now the weather is nice.” Oklahoma’s spring weather caused some hiccups “We had a great time. It’s like our fourth year in a row and it’s the first time we’ve been able to buy art for our home, so we’re really excited,” said festival attendee Kelley Bodell. Another festival attendee, Moira Bodell, said the best part was buying the art, after buying a fox with “great shadow and all kinds of detail”. Sunday is the last day of the festival before it closes at 6 p.m.
