Artist Mike Wimmer Hosts Open House
Artist in residence Mike Wimmer is hosting a drawing/painting social at Oklahoma City University from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday. The event is free to the public.
The social will be held in the Norick Art Center at N.W. 26th Street and Blackwelder Avenue. It will include live music and models in costumes, and refreshments will be served.
Wimmer painted many of the works in the state Capitol Building. He started working on a national scale primarily as a children’s book illustrator. His other projects include creating a more kind and gentle Mr. Clean illustration for the popular cleaning products company, the cover art for Disney’s “Lion King” soundtrack, commemorative can designs for Planters Peanuts, an ornament featuring Will Rogers to hang on the White House Christmas tree as Oklahoma’s representative and the large historic murals in the state Capitol Building.
