Backfire: A Cultural Explosion gathers visual and musical artists together on Friday to buck what they believe are largely intolerant attitudes permeating Oklahoma and its government. Artist Jamie Pettis said this show provides refuge for our marginalized communities. “I didn’t expect for this event to fall under these circumstances,” she said of it opening after Donald Trump’s Nov. 8 election victory. “It’s almost ironic that it’s happening this way.
