Kelly Ogle In Support of Oklahoma Arts Council

Since Oklahomans for the Arts announced HB 1895 over the weekend, there has been a groundswell of support for the Oklahoma Arts Council. The story has been covered by several media outlets across the state.

Yesterday, longtime news anchor and commentator with KWTV-9, Kelly Ogle, offered his support to the Oklahoma Arts Council in his weekly "My Two Cents" essay. The Lost Ogle, a satirical news blog, also covered HB 1895 along with Los Angeles Times Culture Monster section.
