LIVE in the Crossroads 

First Friday, June 5

Join us for a look at Native American art in June. It starts from 6:00–8:00 p.m. with the special focused exhibition Contemporary Native Craft, featuring work by four Oklahoma-based artists, Molly Murphy Adams, Michael Elizondo, Shan Goshorn, and Randi Narcomey-Watson. 

At 7 p.m., the renowned Oklahoma Fancy Dancers will perform outdoors in M-AAA's parking lot. These powwow champions have traveled the world performing traditional native dances in brilliantly colorful regalia. Bring friends. It's free.
