Richard McKown’s focal piece to this exhibition is his “A Last Supper” Painting. This painting, influenced by the Rothko Chapel in Houston and the French film Of Gods and Men, is unique to most with the same subject. Also on display will be a series of paintings inspired by three of Oklahoma City’s mayors who strived to make sure that projects previously started were completed. This series expresses Richard McKown’s appreciation towards the work done in the OKC community.

About the Show: In this classic and revered American comedy from the middle of the 20th century, famous writer Sheridan Whiteside, having dined at the middle-class home of the Stanley’s, slips on ice on their doorstep, breaking his hip. A tumultuous six weeks of confinement follow. The Stanley living room is monopolized by the irascible invalid, ex-convicts are invited to meals, and transatlantic calls bring a $784 phone bill. The arrival of strange gifts from his friends further destroys domestic tranquility. It would take a stoical housewife to harbor penguins in her library, an octopus in her cellar, and 10,000 cockroaches in her kitchen. When Maggie, Whiteside’s secretary, falls in love with a local reporter, Whiteside pulls out all the stops to thwart the relationship and keep his secretary by his side. A glamorous actress, a crazed movie comedian, and a mummy case all feature prominently in this story of love triumphing over all. This holiday story is appropriate for all ages. Directed by Hal Kohlman.
