Oklahoma City's public art, ranging from historic to abstract sculptures to rotating murals in the Plaza District, is the best in the country as ranked by readers of USA Today.
Oklahoma City, described as "a veritable outdoor gallery," was among a list of cities nationwide nominated by a panel of USA Today editors and expert advisers and then voted on by readers.
"Oklahoma City might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think about street art, but this city has become a veritable outdoor gallery," USA Today wrote. "Start your explorations in the Plaza District before continuing on to the Western Avenue corridor and Bricktown."
Rounding out the USA Today list, Cincinnati came in second, followed by Richmond, Va.; Houston; Philadelphia; Reno, Nev.; Detroit; Miami; Atlanta; and Baltimore.
