Come celebrate the Big Read Kick-Off on March 12 at 6:00 p.m. during Norman's 2nd Friday Circuit of Art! Dress in costume to get into the film noir spirit. Period accessories include dark lipsticks and feathered hats, or fedoras and trench coats. An array of art galleries, studios, restaurants, and other Main Street venues will be open late to welcome visitors.
