The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition’s
Momentum annually features Oklahoma artists ages 30 years and younger, working in diverse media. The exhibition presents a diversified look at young artistic talent in Oklahoma.
In light of COVID-19, The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition along with our partner and venue, Dead People's Stuff, have made the decision to change the format of Momentum 2020. This event is officially changing to SLOWMENTUM 2020 and will function as a regular exhibition instead of a 3-day event. The health and wellness of the community are of the utmost importance and we feel this shift in programming is necessary.
SLOWMENTUM will run from Saturday, March 21 - Sunday, April 19. OVAC will be hosting regular gallery hours at Dead People’s Stuff each week
12 pm - 7 pm, Thursday - Saturday, and 10 am - 4 pm every Sunday (excluding Sunday, April 12th to observe Easter Sunday). This will allow visitors to view the artwork without large crowds.
If you require special accommodations to attend and/or participate in Momentum, don't hesitate to contact us at 405-879-2400 or email
Through Momentum Spotlight, the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition provides the opportunity to create new bodies of work with curatorial guidance and a $1,000 honorarium.
