OKLAHOMA CITY, April 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — A new Thursday evening program at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Third Thursdays presented by Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, will debut May 17 at 5 p.m. The first event, “Third Thursday: My Life/My Movie,” features music by Adam and Kizzie, animation experimentation with artist Nicole Emmons-Willis, a special menu at the Museum Cafe, full bar on the Roof Terrace and access to the Museum’s galleries.
