The Stone Lion Inn Bed & Breakfast in Guthrie, Oklahoma has been featured in numerous books and TV series for its ghost stories. Sam and Geoff team up with The Okie Show Show podcast to check out the paranormal activity in a place that the owner refers to as being “a house with issues.”
Oklahoma City’s Boathouse District has been struck by terrestrial gamma-rays, transforming RIVERSPORT into RIVERSCREAM. Help contain the zombies before they escape and terrorize the city by maneuvering the challenges on the six-story Sky Trail to find explosive transformers proven to reverse the effects of the gamma-rays.
Mike Knopp, OKC Boathouse Foundation Executive Director; and John Riggs, Senior Director, Operations and Events share what courageous citizens can do at the family-friendly RIVERSCREAM on Fridays and Saturdays in October.
Whiteout is an installation by artist Erwin Redl (born in Austria, based out of Ohio and New York) that uses a grid of 550 suspended LED bulbs to animate Campbell Art Park next to Oklahoma Contemporary. The bulbs turn off and on according to a computer program, creating a series of moving patterns that work in tandem with the surrounding environment.
Originally commissioned for Madison Square Park Conservancy in New York City in 2017, Whiteout has been modified by the artist specifically for Oklahoma City. In response to the larger location, Redl built a more intricate layout and to create more complex sequences of animation.
Redl became well known for light installations that played across the facades of buildings. In this incarnation of Whiteout, the lights in the middle of the park interact with nature, reflecting off the grass and trees, swaying as the Oklahoma wind blows. In New York, Whiteout was surrounded by skyscrapers and honking cars. In Oklahoma City, the installation has a more serene environment, and at night, access to the stars.
After being invited to join another podcast group at the Stone Lion Inn in Guthrie, Sam and Geoff arrive early to Oklahoma’s most haunted town to gather more stories while there. Local residents give personal experiences of downtown and Stacey Frazier of the Guthrie Ghost Walk shares a treasure trove of stories about a town where the truth is even more shocking than the legends.
