Oklahoma Artcade: A Video Game Gallery Showing

November 3, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

***************************************************
An art show that surrounds vintage video game culture and proudly demonstrates its long-standing legacy in physical form.

From 8-bit to one hits, several local Oklahoma City artists will lend their talents to the exhibition with their original interpertations and imaginations.

If you are looking for a conversation piece to throw in your game room, man cave, or she shed; you’re in luck! Most of the featured artists will have their handiwork for sale and will be available for purchase on site.

The presentation will be held at The Paramount in Oklahoma City. (701 W Sheridan Ave Oklahoma CIty, OK 73102) The Paramount is a renovated theater, part-time dance studio, and all around great space commonly used for concerts, comedy shows, wedding receptions, and, well, art exhibits. It is most recognizable by its large mural of basketball star, Steve Adams painted on its side, paralell to its spacious 110 space parking lot.

The show will be conducted on the 2nd level of the building and can be accessed through the main doors that face Sheridan and share signage with the neighboring establishment NOIR.

The event is free, for all ages, and will have a bar and bistro on site for patrons 21 and over. (With a valid ID.) The attached speakeasy will feature video game themed cocktails for the duration of the event. We humbly ask that our attendants to partake in the patronage of the cocktail lounge and provide a donation to our charity organization of choice, Hotdogs for the Homeless, while they are visiting the venue.

Interested artists can email us at [email protected]!
We also had a separate “CALL FOR ARTISTS” event running. (It closed on the 15th of September. Sorry, we are no longer accepting artists!)

*Thank you to SUPER! BitCon and the Oklahoma Retro Gamers Society and everyone who made this possible!*
