Making Space: Summer Mural Series
NW 11th and Broadway
6/9-8/30 and 9/5-10/31
This summer and early fall, Oklahoma Contemporary will exhibit a series of murals along the construction fence at our new building site.
This project reflects a new version of Guerrilla Art Park, an annual exhibition of outdoor public art by Oklahoma artists, held in the summers of 2016, 2017 and 2018. The mural series shares Guerrilla Art Park's goals: to showcase local talent, give artists an opportunity to grow and develop their skills and offer free public art to enrich downtown Oklahoma City.
The mural series will have two rotations of three murals in June and August 2019. Each round will feature one work from an emerging artist and two from established Oklahoma artists who will each collaborate with an up-and-coming artist. Preference will be given to those from backgrounds/communities not widely represented in Oklahoma City public art. These murals will serve as a mentorship project to introduce new artists to public mural creation.
The first rotation of murals will feature mentoring artists Sergio “Tank” Ramirez (with Iliana Barrientos)
and Amanda Zoey Weathers (with William Larason) and emerging artist Jaiye Farrell. The first rotation of murals were painted live during Second Saturday June 8.
