Alumni Art Exhibit and Sale:

April 01, 2016 • 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

LOCATION: Fly Loft
Downtown Tulsa

This is the 3rd Annual collection of artwork, in a variety of media, produced by alumni of OSUIT’s School of Visual Communications. These artists are or have been successful professionals in the visual communications industry producing art for a variety of business clients. Many graphic designers, photographers and 3D artists, who use their creative talent to communicate the client’s message by day, are compelled to express themselves through their personal artwork by night. The love of painting, drawing, or sculpting, for example, is what initially attracted them to careers in the creative realm. This third annual exhibition represents their escape from budget restrictions, market testing, and client approvals.

This art sale is intended to create a funding stream for scholarships for qualifying and deserving continuing students in OSUIT’s School of Visual Communications. The selected artists have provided 1 or 2 pieces to be sold, with all proceeds going to benefit deserving students continuing their education in OSUIT’s School of Visual Communications. We invite the public, OSUIT alumni and their families, current and prospective OSUIT students and their families, visual communication industry professionals, art lovers and buyers, supporters of the OSU system, supporters of art/technical education, people in the habit of charitable giving to join us.

Be a part of our story by purchasing art at the auction or by donating directly to the tax-deductible fund: OSUIT Visual Communications Student Scholarship Fund #29-99550. Credit cards, checks, and cash accepted at the auction.
