The annual 12×12 Art Fundraiser fuses 175 of Oklahoma’s finest artists with local food and live entertainment to create a memorable one-night-only art event.

12×12 raises funds for all of OVAC’s programs, making Oklahoma a place where visual artists can thrive and make an impact in their communities. Your support allows us to continue this important throughout the state.

The Event

For 12×12, each artist creates a work that conforms to the dimensions of 12x12”, or 12x12x12” for 3D artwork. Event attendees can bid for pieces they want to purchase in an online auction. All bids begin at $200. Attendees afraid of losing a piece in the auction may “Buy It Now” to trump the auction. Attendees may also bid on silent auction packages to win prizes from local businesses!

The Artists

12×12 artists are selected by a volunteer committee in the early summer. Artists who sell in the previous year are automatically invited back. The number of new artist invitations is determined by how many artists did and did not sell in the previous year. In 2015, we were very proud to increase the number of artists served from 150 to 175, which opened up more new invitations.


12x12 would not be possible without the amazing support of our committee and volunteers! 

2022 Committee sign-up is currently closed.

Volunteers needed! All volunteers receive a free ticket to the event!
