This competitive juried show is held each spring and highlights the diverse works of art created by art and art history students from the University of Oklahoma. Multiple awards with cash prizes are presented to students, including the top award, the T.G. Mays Purchase Award, which is offered to a student whose artwork becomes a part of the museum’s permanent collection.
The guest juror for the 101st Annual School of Art & Art History Student Exhibition is Chad Alligood, curator at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. Alligood recently co-curated State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now, an exhibition that features 102 artists from every region of the country.
A public lecture and opening reception will be held 6-9 p.m. Thursday, January 22. The awards ceremony will take place at 8 p.m. in the Sandy Bell Gallery.
