Event description
OVAC is teaming up with the Paseo Arts Association and OKC's Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs to teach you about public art selection!

About this Event

PUBLIC ART SELECTION BY MOCK JURY

Participants will learn how an art selection committee views artist submissions in a mock public art selection workshop. Submission materials are often a mystery to artists until they see how each piece is used to tell a story about their work and skills. Arts Administrators will facilitate the meeting. Each participant will be assigned a role and will view submissions as if they’re a member of selection committee. Artists will learn how to make stronger submissions as a result and how to be more organized in order to avoid “submission fatigue.”

Background

The Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs was established in July 2012 as a section of Oklahoma City’s Planning Department. The office coordinates arts and cultural initiatives to further the City’s economic, tourism and community development priorities. Staff advises and oversees Arts Commission matters and work with all of the departments, trusts and authorities of the City to implement the 1% for Arts ordinance established by the City Council in 2009 as well as the current Cultural Plan and Public Art Master Plan.

For 30 years, Robbie Kienzle has facilitated the planning and development of placemaking and public art strategies that improve the vitality of public life and transform communities. Her extensive redevelopment experience has included both economic development and community development initiatives. All projects have included arts components that range from commissioning public art to creating events that engage broad community audiences, and from master planning to policy development to make public and private investment in the arts more intentional and easier to navigate. She has coordinated projects and programs involving large groups of stakeholders, a diversity of information, various and complex funding sources, and numerous disciplines. Those efforts have led to large- and small-scale land use planning, land acquisition, remediation, redevelopment, public artworks commissioning, and other public realm improvements that enrich civic projects, neighborhoods, commercial districts, and streetscapes, and which make public spaces more successful.

Randy Marks is the Public Art Project Manager for the City of Oklahoma City. His primary area of responsibility is the administration and management of the City projects funded through the 1% for Art Ordinance. Recently completed projects have ranged from a titanium and LED 21st century marvel in the new Convention Center to a crowd-pleasing chainsaw carved wooden bench in a City Park.

Before working at the City Randy owned Groundwork Applied Design, a design/build firm specializing in contemporary sustainable landscape design. And before that he was an artist and designer working in a variety of media, most notably creating lighted sculpture using paper and steel. He has lived in Oklahoma City most of his adult life, is married to Sharon Astrin, and has a French bulldog rescue named Chou-Chou, the Queen of All the Dogs.

About the Paseo Arts Association: The PAA is a 501c3 non-profit organization that has worked since 1981 to develop the Paseo into the thriving arts district it is today. We work to strengthen the foundation of our historic district by supporting artistic growth within the community year round through public events and programs such the Paseo Arts Festival, free children's events Fairy Ball and Magic Lantern, and exhibitions in the Paseo Arts & Creativity Center that have grown to feature the work of more than 250 artists each year.

About Midtown Rotary: The OKC Midtown Rotary Club was chartered in 2009 with the goal of involving younger professionals in the service, fellowship and ideals of Rotary International. Midtown Rotary loves the arts. Big time. As such, we have taken a particular interest in serving the arts community in the Oklahoma City area. We try to keep our hands-on service opportunities fun and focused on events that have helped to energize Oklahoma City’s community, and we actively seek service projects that allow us to promote arts education in Oklahoma City. You can find us every Tuesday evening, 6 – 7 p.m. at James E. McNellie’s Public House in Midtown (or on Zoom….)
