The Oklahoma Visual Artists Coalition will host the OK Art Crawl, a statewide event to give individual artists and galleries the chance to share their art with the public in responsible ways.

Works will be put on public display — in windows, on driveways, on porches — so that patrons can see the work while maintaining social distancing.

Hours for the OK Art Crawl are 5-8 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, June 27-28. To access a downloadable map of all participating locations, which includes more than 50 artists and venues in the Tulsa area, go to: ovac-ok.org/ok-art-crawl.

The coalition, which in the past has presented studio tours in which local artists opened their workspaces to the public, created this new event in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has shut down many summer festivals and arts events in Oklahoma.

All participants are encouraged to follow social distancing guidelines as detailed by the CDC, including keeping a distance of 6 feet between parties and wearing masks when in shared spaces.

Any sales taken during the event must be done through Venmo, Paypal or another online sales platform to conduct no-contact sales. OVAC will not be taking any commission on sales.
