"Sharing the Spirit" Art Show

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla- A unique collection of artwork took center stage at Cameron University Sunday.

It was on display as "Sharing The Spirit" a series of events celebrating Native American heritage in Southwest Oklahoma kicked off.

The events were put on by the City of Lawton and the Lawton Arts and Humanities Council.

Sunday's showing featured 73 pieces of artwork that were collected by John C. Painter up until his death in 2011, and then gifted to Cameron University.

And Sunday painters and citizens alike came to enjoy the artistry.

"It is important to carry on because within each and everyone of us is a spirit that is striving to get out," Robert Redbird, Jr.

It is this spirit that organizers hope will be spread to the community through these events.

The 73-piece collection will be on display at The Great Plains Museum starting this week and will continue through January.
