This site, a former Norman Fire Department location, is now a center piece of local artists for several decades. Pottery (it has kilns), drawing and painting classes for all ages and a gallery and gift shop makes this place special to visitors and participants.

My visit was a few weeks before Christmas. There were several unique gifts items for consideration and the prices were good. I always enjoy perusing the offerings if local artists. From what I gathered the staff is volunteers so patience may be needed.

I was the only customer in the center but couldn't seem to get help. The art is good, prices I found seemed good. I did want to purchase but left as I had a meeting to attend. Maybe next time.

I loved looking at the art made by the children. The gift store offers unique pieces of art for sale; from seals to blown glass.

These days with so little art that is funded publicly, the Firehouse is still one of Norman's cultural institutions. Classes and workshops for the young and old, a changing exhibition gallery, and a shop offering all kinds of beautifully crafted items make this an important art center in the middle of Norman. The Firehouse also participates in the 2nd Friday... More
