The Oklahoma State University Museum of Art is located in Stillwater, Oklahoma. This is a smaller gallery right off Main Street. They have a room for permanent pieces and a gallery for traveling exhibits. This museum had free admission!
Travel Tip: You’re not allowed to take medium-sized or large purses in the gallery. They offer to hold them at the front while you walk through the gallery or suggest you take them back to your vehicle. Just something to be mindful about!
Here are a few photos that I took inside and outside the museum! I hope you’ll go check this gallery out!
My Favorite Piece
My favorite piece was the glazed earthenware piece by Futurist artist Renato Giuseppe Bertelli. Futurist artists were known for depicting speed and motion. That’s one of the reasons I like this piece – it looks like it’s moving and that caught my eye. This piece depicts Benito Mussolini in motion representing his ability as a leader to know everything. This work also depicts Mussolini’s masculinity through sharper angles – giving the allusion of power.
The OSU Museum of Art is a cool little art museum to check out whenever you are in Stillwater. Remember, admission is free! This would be a great date for broke college students (free activities are great!) or a fun girl’s day trip. Whatever you do – make sure to add this to your list of things to do in Stillwater, Oklahoma!
Travel Tip: There are other little galleries on the Oklahoma State University campus as well. These galleries display OSU student’s art! I had the privilege of attending one of my friend’s capstone exhibitions at the Gardiner Gallery on campus and it was beautiful. The Gardiner Gallery also hosts traveling exhibits from time to time. Admission is also free to this gallery!
Happy Traveling! I’ll talk to ya soon! 🙂
