The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition (OVAC) seeks artistic proposals for the Art 365 exhibition. 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 NEW body of original artwork for the exhibition, opening in 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.
