What is Adventus?
Adventus is a city-wide art collaborative responding to the season of Advent.
Christmas and the holiday season has become rather thin for our culture. It comes and goes year after year without us giving much thought to what we’re really doing other than going into debt in gift purchases and thinking about our wish list. We wondered if there was a way to call Oklahoma City to actually take time to think about this season of Advent, reflect on it, its complexities, as well as its beauty, allowing all of us to approach this time of the year with a new vision and understanding. Adventus is playing out practically in two ways:
1) A Call To The Artists
We’ve called all local artists to take time to intentionally engage with this season, and then respond by creating artwork that expresses some of the things they’ve learned or saw along the way.
2) A Call To The City
On Dec. 11th, we’re inviting the city to see the variety of responses submitted to Adventus during Live in the Plaza. We will be hosting an art show at Convergence as well as live performances (music, poetry, etc.) from 7pm-11pm.
