Oklahoma City is rich with art indoors and out. Recently our community received a special acclaim from USA Today’s 10Best, leaving us at the top of the list of the 10 best cities for street art.

The full list is as follows:

  1. Oklahoma City - Oklahoma

  4. Houston - Texas
  5. Philadelphia - Pennsylvania
  6. Reno - Nevada
  7. Detroit - Michigan

To receive this acclaim, “a panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote.”
