What to do in Oklahoma on March 6, 2013: Check out free gallery hours for “Momentum” tonight at 50 Penn Place
Today’s featured event:
Check out free gallery hours for the 12th annual “Momentum: Art Doesn’t Stand Still” from 5 to 7 p.m. today and Thursday at 50 Penn Place, 1900 Northwest Expressway.
Presented by the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition, “Momentum” offers Oklahoma artists ages 30 and younger an opportunity to exhibit their work in a venue created specifically for them. The interactive event presents a diversified look at Oklahoma’s young artistic talent. Each year, hundreds of young artists submit their work to be considered for the exhibition.
“It’s the only program that we have that is specifically for young artists and that was created out of a need that we saw for young artists to gain some experience showing their work,” speaking to the public about their work, entering and going through the process of a juried exhibition,” OVAC Associate Director Kelsey Karper told me in an interview. “These are all things that artists need to have experience doing in order to move their career forward, so ‘Momentum’ was created to help them kind of get their foot in the door.”
The exhibit opened with a two-night celebration last weekend and closes Thursday.
