Arizona is home to the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon, crazy desert wildlife, and very hot summers.
Oklahoma City has a lot to offer, but it would be a shame not to mention how many unique and beautiful sculptures abound within the city’s limits. Here are a few sculptures that will surely captivate your imagination.
1. Skydance Bridge
Skydance Bridge adorns the sky and acts as a gateway from the interstate into downtown Oklahoma City. During the day, it stands as a giant piece that promises magic once dusk arrives. And when dusk arrives, it truly delivers a beautiful sight as it changes colors slowly. It is hard to remove your eyes from this truly amazing work of art.
2. The Womb
The Womb is a counter cultural arts center where on any given day, you can see unique sculptures. Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips is always giving back to the city of his birth, where his own imagination and creativity was formed. The Womb is his special place and it can be your special place too!
3. Jesus Wept
And Jesus Wept is appropriately placed at the Oklahoma City Bombing memorial.
4. Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial
Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial contains unique memorial sculptures that illuminate the pool of water and tree lined area where the building once stood. It is a sad reminder of man’s instability as well as a reminder of man’s mortality.
5. Abstract Sculptures at the Municipal Building
Abstract Sculptures at the Municipal Building downtown perfectly set the vibe of a city known for its peaceful and creative dwellers. Even when busy at work, these sculptures relax the mind and re-center oneself.
6. Botanical Garden Abstract
This Botanical Garden Abstract is just one facet that adds to the charm and beauty of the downtown park where the Oklahoma City Botanical Garden resides. You could spend all day at this park alone, taking in the marriage of human artistic creativity and nature.
7. The Bird
The Bird eyeing an apple is a hidden gem between buildings housing various business suites. It’s just one of those things that reminds us that nature is all around us, even when busy at work in the office.
8. Downtown Abstract
A Downtown Abstract sculpture captivates visitors and Oklahoma City natives alike, as it defies gravitational and geometric logic.
9. The Oddity
The Oddity of this sculpture seems to find you rather than you finding it. There are many interpretations of its symbolism; I see butterflies!
10. The Old Cowboy Downtown
The Old Cowboy Downtown greets many a traveler as they stay in the beautiful Sheraton Hotel during their stay in Oklahoma City. He reminds us of the past but also reminds that not far from the city’s limits, cowboys and farmland abound the state’s beautiful rolling hills.
There is plenty more to see in Oklahoma City, and during your visit, you’ll encounter various man-made works of art like these gorgeous sculptures. Plan your trip now!
