OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahomans looking for some relief from the heat found it at the 36th annual Red Earth Festival, held inside the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

Some of the finest and most celebrated Native American artists, sculptors, potters, painters, dancers and jewelers showcased their beautiful works of art as visitors strolled through the museum.

“It is a great event, and we’re all over the state and having opportunities to showcase our local artists as well as our out of state artists. So…I think it benefits our state greatly,” said Vickie Norick, Chairwoman, Red Earth Festival Youth Art Program.
