Call for Artists! Two Opportunities.

The City of Oklahoma City announces this call for professional artists to submit their qualifications to be considered for public art for the two atriums of the new MAPS 4 Convention Center currently under construction. The art will be:
• instantly memorable, visually compelling
• monumental
• timeless and enduring
• culturally appropriate
• site specific
• easily maintained
• innovative in concept and construction
The Oklahoma City Downtown Convention Center will provide significant meeting spaces for national and regional business and non-profit conventions. Temporary displays, exhibits and concerts by local artists, designers and other creatives will be presented as stand-alone experiences and in conjunction with convention events for visitors and residents.


4:00:00PM (CST) on November 7, 2018

This opportunity is open to all practicing artists, at least 18 years of age. Artists with prior public art experience residing in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area or beyond are encouraged to submit proposals. Submissions from artist teams are particularly encouraged. All artists and artist teams selected as finalists must attend all required information sessions or site visits.
