Philbrook Downtown Bringing New Art to the Area

Posted: Updated:

The Philbrook Museum is moving downtown...well sort of.

The museum is actually opening up a satellite gallery with all new artwork. Philbrook Downtown is located in the Brady Arts District at the corner of Brady and Cincinnati.

It's a two story art gallery that will have modern and contemporary art on the first floor and Native American art on the second floor. The Director of the Philbrook Downtown, Rand Suffolk said this new location will hopefully bring new art lovers since the artwork is different from their museum.

"This gives us an entirely new diminish to the visitors experience it is very different than our main campus but differently beautiful. It gives us a chance to showcase the work that we have never been able to do," Suffolk said.

This project was six years in the making and funded by several donations including the 30,000 square foot space by the George Kaiser Family Foundation. Suffolk said they couldn't be more excited about the growing area around this location.

"Six years ago when we started this process, we never imagined that this eco-system would develop at the pace that it has," Suffolk said.

Philbrook Downtown will be open free to the public all weekend long. Starting next Wednesday through Saturday it will be open from noon till 7 p.m. and then on Sunday it will be open from noon till 5 p.m.
