The Tulsa Artist Fellowship is a program that was established by the George Kaiser Family Foundation. The point of the program is to bring artists into Tulsa and give them the opportunity to create new works. NEW/NOW: Works by the Tulsa Artist Fellows is an exhibit housed in the Philbrook Downtown that displays incredible contemporary art that the twenty-four fellows have been working on.
As it states in the entrance of the gallery, the pieces represent the type of contemporary art that is present today. It challenges the boundaries and invites the audience to open up their minds, showing works that compel you to stop and think about what the artist was attempting to portray. Some of the artist’s impressive work will be shown below, but I highly encourage anyone interested in contemporary art to experience it for themselves.
