Oklahoma Contemporary
Veterans

Veterans Initiative

Oklahoma Contemporary serves as a hub for our creative community and actively works to identify ways to make meaningful connections between veterans and contemporary art/artists.

Ten percent of Oklahoma's adult population are veterans of the U.S. military. By engaging in creative practice, veterans discover new ways to connect with each other and their community. The arts are proven to build resilience, strengthen coping skills and improve overall well-being.

Oklahoma Contemporary's program employs professional teaching artists to support veterans in the technical, intellectual and creative aspects of developing their artistic practice.
