Hardy George, PhD. was Chief Curator Emeritus at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art until his death on July 10, 2011


I never met Hardy George.


But I spent a lot of time at the northside YMCA, working out many evenings after work in the 2000s. So did Hardy George. If my memory is right, Hardy would have a book with him as he walked on the treadmill.

At the time I didn’t know he was chief curator emeritus of the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

But I would encounter Hardy at various events I covered for NewsOK.com. I learned he was a respected art expert.

It’s sad I never walked up and said “hello, our paths have crossed a few times, what’s your story?” People who travel a lot have the best stories.

So that’s my loss.

And Hardy’s passing is the art world’s and this community’s loss.
