Creative Arts Enid (CAE), at 222 E. Maple, is meant to be a creative outlet, said Lisa Magyar, who took over as executive director in 2015. It doesn’t matter if you’re an accomplished artist or never sat down to create before, she said.

Though Enid may not exactly look the part, this Northwest Oklahoma city plays host to a vibrant music scene where artists support one another and their respective crafts.
