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 July 2020-June 2021 to create a body of original artwork for the exhibition, which opens in Tulsa July 2nd, 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.
