TULSA, Oklahoma -

Art has a new home in the Brady District. It's part of a growing presence of artists - in what was already called the "arts district." The Henry Zarrow Center opened there Tuesday.

John Bryant is both an artist in residence and a student perfecting his printmaking skills. He can do both in a new, first class studio at the Henry Zarrow Center for Art and Education.

"Having the light, the sunlight and the incandescent, with that warm light, all of that makes a huge difference," Zarrow said.

Bryant is just one of the artists with studio space on the third floor of the Center. He's gaining experience both working alone and around other artists from many creative disciplines.

"Art is for all of us, and it's hard pressed in the schools right now and art isn't doing well with the budget cuts and so on," TU Arts & Sciences Dean Tom Benediktson said. "This allows TU to contribute to the art community and we want to be part of it."

The Zarrow Center is one piece of the growing arts presence in the Brady district. In the next year, more museum space, educational areas and offices for arts groups will open in the same block.
