Oklahoma Museums Invited to Artist Summit

The Oklahoma Arts Council is inviting Oklahoma museums to join them at their upcoming Artist Summit on June 8.  The purpose of the invitation is to serve as the conduit by which to connect artists with Oklahoma museums who use artists; either in a performing, exhibiting or teaching capacity. Also, if your museum has relationships with artists that OAC does not know, they would want those artists to feel welcome to join them for the summit. This event if not exclusively for current roster artists alone. Non-roster artists are invited as well.  OAC will offer table space so that you can promote your museum to the artist community, and begin (or continue) such important relationships.  More information here
