Emerge: Art Mentorship Program

Emerge 2021 Artist: Ariana Weir  

Ariana Weir is a Mexican American printmaker from Oklahoma City. She uses relief printmaking to document and investigate her cultural identity and the world around her. She recently graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Studio Art with an emphasis in printmaking.

Ariana will work towards creating a body of work for a solo show towards the end of the year. In the months leading up to the show, the artist will receive constructive feedback on their artwork from Inclusion In Art’s distinguished board of directors practicing artists and curators. The selected artist will receive guidance in various professional practices.

This program is open to any emerging Oklahoma artist that identifies as a racial/ethnic minority. We define emerging artists as anyone who has just started their career in art, no matter their age. 

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