Sketch to Screen

Let me start by saying sorry to my friend Susan, we talked about going to the museum together but when I took off last minute on Friday my mom and me made a quick decision to go! So Susan, I am sorry!
Ok…………
Friday was a blissful day like I mentioned before and I started the day at the Oklahoma Museum of Art, I have never been. And let me tell you…you should go!!!! What I really enjoyed was the portrait hall some paintings dating back to the 1600s.
Below is the beautiful atrium that greets you when you walk in………

The building itself is beautiful, you should bring out of town guests to get a peak of downtown thru the eyes of this museum. Not only does it house exhibits but a movie theater and a cafe’…

My mom and I had lunch at the YUMMY Museum Cafe’….if you remember one of the cooking classes I have taken was taught by the Cafe’s head chef! I had the fresh Cafe Club and a to die for Lobster Bisque topped with cavier and a puff pastry disk! Delish! The Cafe is solid glass and overlooks the Civic Center, you should check it out! We talked about how it felt like we were somehwere else for well at least an hour!

The reason I wanted to go was to see the exhibit…”Sketch to Screen” and it did not disappoint!!!! This exhibit showcases over 50 costumes worn in the movies as well as the original sketches…everything from the original dresses worn in Gone with the Wind, Titanic, Mama Mia, Legally Blonde and Gladiator just to name a few!! The bummer was…no camera’s and trust me they follwed you around!!! BOO! This was so much fun and the exhibit runs thru August 15th!!!

The Oklahoma Art Museum also houses the largest Chihuly collection in the US, I sneaked the picture below with my IPhone! It is truly a must see! To learn more about the Museum click HERE!!!
