Art 365 is an exhibition which offers five Oklahoma artists one year and $12,000 to create innovative artwork in collaboration with a nationally recognized curator.

The Event

Through Art 365, Oklahoma artists create innovative artwork working with a nationally recognized curator.


The five awarded artists each will receive a $12,000 honorarium. Once selected, the artists will work with a curator from May 2020-May 2021 to create a body of original artwork for the exhibition, which opens in May or June 2021.  


Those selected will meet with the guest curator multiple times throughout the year-long award period in order to prepare for the exhibition. Through studio visits and regular communications, the artists and curator will discuss direction, examine progress, and finalize the concept and presentation.


Visual artists working in all media are eligible to submit, including but not limited to drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, film/video, mixed media, and/or multi-media.


Eligible artists must be 21 years or older. They must have resided in Oklahoma for at least one year at the time of application and must maintain residency throughout the exhibition.


Applicants cannot be enrolled as degree-seeking art students at the time of the application or exhibition opening. Past Art 365 artists are not eligible.


Collaborative proposals are welcomed from longstanding collaborations or from partnerships established for this project. Individual artists may only submit one proposal or be a part of one collaborative proposal.
