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.
Through Art 365, Oklahoma artists create innovative artwork working with a nationally recognized curator.
Every three years, the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition (OVAC) hosts the highly competitive program, Art 365, in which five Oklahoma-based creative proposals are selected to complete innovative artwork in consultation with a nationally recognized curator. In an unprecedented model for the region, the artists receive an honorarium of $12,000. Over the course of the last year, these artists have created a body of work that will culminate with exhibitions in both Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
The artists for this iteration of Art 365 were chosen by guest curator, Grace Deveney, associate curator of Prospect.5 in New Orleans. The selected artists are: Ginnie Baer (Edmond), Crystal Z Campbell (Oklahoma City), Naima Lowe (Tulsa), Mirella Martinez (Stillwater), and collaborators Maggie Boyett (Oklahoma City) and Marwin Begaye (Norman).
In addition to the exhibitions, each artist will lead a free workshop or panel discussion that aligns with the themes of their project. These events aim to teach new skills while also talking about the content and processes the artists use in their work, providing the community a deeper connection to the artwork in the exhibition and the Art 365 program.
For 33 years as a nonprofit, OVAC has helped Oklahoma artists enrich the state through their creative endeavors. OVAC will present Art 365 in partnership with Living arts of Tulsa and ARTSPACE at Untitled. This program is supported by Mid-America Arts Alliance, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, the Oklahoma Arts Council, George Kaiser Family Foundation, Kirkpatrick Family Fund, and NBC Bank. OVAC is an Allied Arts member agency.
