The End of 1219 Creative at 12th & Classen Blvd.

The experiment in art, creativity and business known as 1219 Creative will end operations at 1219 N. Classen Blvd. near downtown OKC on October 31st, 2017. The building that houses 1219 Creative (along with long-term business Abraham’s Bail Bonds at 1221 N. Classen) has been sold to John Richert at Baseline Properties. After meeting with Richert, the artist and creative professionals who work and collaborate together at 1219 Creative decided to look for other more cohesive options. With that, 1219 Creative as a collaborative co-work space, offices and art gallery will cease at the end of the month. We wish Richert the best of luck with the building in the future, specifically the Yatika Fields mural on the North wall. No future activity at this address will be created, managed or endorsed by the 1219 Creative brand, collective or collaborators. Here are a few of the things we’ve accomplished over the last 4 years.
