Artist Mentoring Artist

Are you an emerging artist or junior/senior level art student in college? Inclusion in Art is currently seeking visual artists identifying as racial/ethnic minorities to participate in our 2019 Mentorship program. The selected artist(s) will work with our art committee throughout this next year to expand their body of work and exhibit this work in Fall 2019. The process will be documented and shared through our website and social media to promote the artist and exhibition. Our goal is to give the selected artist the opportunity to expand their professionalism by working with our artists of varying backgrounds.

Our group is dedicated to promoting racial and cultural diversity in Oklahoma’s visual art community and encouraging those at the early stages in their artistic career to become more involved.
