2019 Opening a New Era in the Arts

Oklahoma State University opened The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts. A cutting-edge facility that will welcome world-renowned acts to the OSU campus, the center is the result of a unified vision to create a new cultural epicenter in Stillwater.

In 2016, Oklahoma State University alumni Billie and Ross McKnight gave $25 million to establish an endowment to support world-class programming for the benefit of the university, the community and the entire region.

On Oct. 11, 2019, The New York Philharmonic kicked off the center’s inaugural season during a three-day series of performances.
