Oklahoma City, OK, April 6, 2010 – midwestmedia & marketing, inc. proudly presents their newest endeavor – @1614, a promotional campaign highlighting local artists through video webisodes, a display gallery and monthly open house.
Produced and presented by midwestmedia & marketing, @1614 will be a venue for art lovers to visit the office of midwestmedia & marketing, inc and view breakthrough art created by local Oklahoma City artists.
“We’re passionate about promoting cutting-edge artists in Oklahoma City and our office in the Plaza District gives us an amazing opportunity to provide artists physical space and creative support,” Christopher Hunt, midwestmedia & marketing, inc owner, said.
Each month, a selected artist will display their creative work in the midwestmedia & marketing, inc. office located at 1614 N. Gatewood in the Plaza District. An innovative webisode video called @1614, will be produced by midwestmedia & marketing, inc. to promote the artist and their work. The pinnacle of the collaboration is an open house the second Friday of every month in conjunction with Live on the Plaza hosted by @1614 in the midwestmedia & marketing, inc. office.
“We’re aiming to promote the growing artistic community here in Oklahoma City, while showcasing the benefits of creative collaboration,” Hunt said. “It’s the essence of the Plaza District.”
The first @1614 viewing happens Friday, April 9, 2010 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. at 1614 N. Gatewood Avenue in the historic Plaza District.
The artist featured during the inaugural opening of @1614 is mixed media artist Bryan Boone.
Boone was born and currently lives in Oklahoma City. Primarily self-taught, Boone works in mixed-media exploring the fundamentals of structure, form and space.
“I am inspired by architecture, mechanics, infrastructure, and design,” Boone said. “My work explores structure and shape set against noise and underlying forms. To create these environments I construct in layers, establishing initial planes of disorder first. As the world takes shape, forms emerge and construct the subject. By creating a full environment for the foreground structures, the designs gain context and therefore contrast and focus.”
