    The Arts District of Oklahoma City is where they keep the art, artists, and performers, and also the police and courts. Seriously, though, there are more than the average number of galleries, and a number of performing venues, and is right around the corner from the Myriad Gardens and police headquarters. The other arts district in town is on the north end of The Paseo, where the avant-garde are stationed.
