ABOUT CURRENT CO-OP

Located two doors south of Current Studio at 1214 N Penn Ave, Current CO-OP offers affordable 24/7 studio space in Oklahoma City with open studio access for up to 30 artists.

The CO-OP community space has 30 individual lockers for storage, common area work tables, a utility sink, drying racks, and two unisex restrooms. There is an additional area where artists can store larger items necessary for making, such as an easel.
