Call for Artists: The Big Show at Philbrook Museum

The Big Show is a radically inclusive exhibition highlighting the creativity of young people across Tulsa and Oklahoma. All Oklahoma artists ages 4-18 are welcome to submit. As long as works are 12 x 12 inches in size or less, they will be placed on view in the gallery. Especially at a time when we seek to counter the  isolation, stress, and upheaval of the past year, the diversity of works on display will create a shared space for young artists to see themselves, their communities, and their creativity honored. Visitors will have a chance to view art and make their own art inspired by nature.

All Oklahoma young artists ages 4-18 are eligible to participate.

  • One work per artist, up to 12” x 12” for 2d works and 12” x 12” x 12” for 3d works.

  • All entries meeting requirements will be accepted until capacity is reached.

  • Choose a theme to inspire your work:Art that shows you or your community.
    Art inspired by nature or the outdoors.
    Art from your imagination.
