Submit a Portfolio
Artists interested in exhibiting their work may submit their portfolio using the form below. Submission of a portfolio does not guarantee exhibition.
Factors taken into consideration in the selection of artists include the artist's connection to the state, professional status, physical nature of artwork in relation to exhibit space, diverse ethnic and cultural background of artist, and statewide representation. Artistic excellence and artistic merit are the criteria by which artwork will be considered, taking into account general standards of decency and respect for the diverse beliefs and values of the people of Oklahoma.
Portfolio Submission Guidelines
Submission of a portfolio does not guarantee exhibition. If an artist is invited to exhibit in the galleries, the Oklahoma Arts Council selects and curates the artwork in the exhibition. In addition, the Council provides gallery space, installs the artist's work inside the gallery, arranges lighting, writes text panels and labels, and distributes a news release based on information provided by the artist. Prices may not be displayed, and sales cannot be conducted inside the Oklahoma State Capitol.
Portfolios will be reviewed by the Curator of Capitol Exhibitions and presented to the Capitol Preservation Committee on an annual rolling basis for exhibition consideration.
Visitors are permitted to photograph the artwork at the Oklahoma State Capitol, however all works are copyrighted and cannot be reproduced.
