Dear Gents,

February—it’s the shortest month of the year, but there’s definitely no shortage of exciting things happening here in OKC. When thinking of ideas for our Arts + Makers issue, we were inspired by the talented local creatives who beautify our community with their work. Whether it’s local theater performances, the OKC arts scene or handmade goods from local artisans, we were impressed by the creative culture our city is bursting with.

With our own bustling creative scene—from jewelry makers and potters to musicians and actors—we hope you find inspiration in these pages and come to appreciate our unique perspective here in OKC. Consider this issue your guide to all things creative and hit the town to unleash your own creativity!

You never know—we may see you around!
