In celebration of our 50th anniversary in 2019, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation is pleased to join Oklahoma Contemporary as the presenting sponsor of Erwin Redl: Whiteout at Campbell Art Park.

Whiteout is free for all ages to enjoy and best experienced during the hours from twilight to dawn.

“In celebration of 50 years of connecting people with causes they care about, the Oklahoma City Community Foundation is excited to help bring this world-class art installation to the community as the presenting sponsor. We have a long partnership with Oklahoma Contemporary, and with Whiteout being installed right down the street from our office in Automobile Alley, it was a perfect fit for our 50th anniversary celebration.”
Whiteout is comprised of hundreds of transparent white spheres, each embedded with a discrete, white LED light and suspended from a square grid of steel poles and cabling. The orbs are not fixed and can move with the wind currents from their positions of one foot above the ground plane. The white LEDs are animated in large-scale patterns, superimposing a virtual movement on top of the kinetic movement of the spheres. The sequence of light is an incandescent treatment of urban public space across the dark seasons of the late fall and winter.
