OKLAHOMA CITY — The traveling portrait exhibit of the inaugural class of 55 Over 55 Inspiring Oklahomans launches this week at the State Capitol on the fourth floor Rotunda.

There will be a free reception open to the public on Saturday, January 21, from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The portraits will remain on view until January 26.  Following the State Capitol exhibit, portraits of the 55 Over 55 Winners will be showcased at various museums and locations across the state for a year.
