About Neighborhood Arts

Neighborhood Arts programs are a summer staple at the Metropolitan Library System. This June and July, the entertainment line-up is full of fun, energetic performances from favorite artists and some new ones too.

A variety of musical styles and performance arts round out the cultural offerings. The performances are sponsored by the Arts Council of OKCNational Endowment of the Arts and the Oklahoma Arts Council, and aim to provide access to music, dance and visual arts education” to the community.

Performers go on tour for two weeks at a time, making stops at neighborhood libraries along the way.
