This space gathers artists and creative catalysts to wrestle with
the deep questions of art, faith, and humanity in order to inspire
the creative community to engage the culture that is and create
the world that “ought to be.” WE ARE A FLEXIBLE ART
SPACE THAT WILL ACCOMDATE YOU AND YOUR CRAFT.
The intent of this space is to nurture a creative environment for artists to explore their craft, have room to make their work and
be involved in Plaza walks to begin profiting as an artist. This
space is for the artist that is seeking exposure to other creatives
and works well in a collective environment.
This space is not limited to any one kind of artist. We want to
include visual artists, illustrators, photographers, designers, print
makers, etc. and will work to accommodate each artist and their materials and tools
located between N.W. 15 thand 16 thstreet on Blackwelder in OKLAHOMA CITY.
WHAT YOU GET:
Shared studio, full shop, lounge and community space.
24 hour access to the work space
All bills paid including free internet
Use of full bath and laundry room
Would be part of the monthly “LIVE on the PLAZA” artwalk
The opportunity to connect with commercial retail
space to sell their goods (DNAgalleries, Collected
Thread, Bad Granny’s, etc.)
Locking storage for art supplies and work
Another exciting aspect to this space is that we will
be teaming up with Backporch Media to create
an online gallery of each artist’s work built and
maintained by their media team. They will create an
online presence on our website, thesocietyokc.com
of each artists including a bio video, a gallery
of their work and the means to purchase that work
online. This gives the artist the time necessary to
produce their work while selling online.
RENT IS FLEXIBLE AND WILL DEPEND ON THE
NUMBER OF ARTISTS WE HAVE CREATING IN
OUR SPACE. FOR NOW WE ARE LOOKING FOR 3
ARTISTS TO PAY $400.
