National Arts Incubation Lab

Arts Incubation Lab

The Weitzenhoffer College of Fine Arts will launch the inaugural National Arts Incubation Lab from May 23 through 25. Eight outstanding artists will work with six leading experts of the arts industry. These artists are chosen by competitive application from across North America, and were selected on the basis of their artistic excellence and potential for breakthrough. Described by some as “SHARK TANK” meets “THE ARTS,” the Lab is unique for combining and amplifying the best of both startup investment culture and existing arts granting models.

The Lab administers a $10,000 National Arts Incubation Lab Artrepreneur Award to the top artist project.

May 23 and 24, 9 am-3 pm, OU Innovation Hub, 201 David Boren Blvd., Norman, OK 73072
