There isn’t much middle ground when it comes to how one feels about Wes Anderson, the filmmaker behind Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom.

An abandoned lumber yard isn’t your typical setting for a good time. But for a month-long public arts project, it’s ideal.

Main Street and Webster Avenue in Norman. Admission is free. Call 360-1162 or visit startnorman.com.
