The event is a celebration of the reinstallation of modern art into the museum’s Sandy Bell Gallery, following renovations. The staff thought White Denim was a good fit for such a celebration, according to museum spokesperson Michael Bendure. “We felt like it was a really nice way to complement the contemporary modern art,” he said.
Booked in conjunction with the recent Norman Music Festival, the 7:30 p.m. free show will be FJJMA’s first on its front lawn, Bendure said.
A day earlier, from 5 to 9 p.m., live music will be provided by The Eighth Street Trio, an ensemble of University of Oklahoma School of Music instructor Ricardo Coelho de Souza. For more information, call 325-3272 or visit ou.edu/fjjma. —Ryan Querbach
