Spheres of Influence

When September 24-27, 2015
Where University of Oklahoma, and, Oklahoma City Museum of Art
Keynote Speaker Sharon Harper
Featured Speakers Mary Virginia Swanson, Will Wilson
Honored Educator Chad D. Smith

Conference events on Friday will take place at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art (OKCMOA) in Oklahoma City. Saturday events will take place in Norman, Oklahoma, at the University of Oklahoma and at MAINSITE Contemporary Art Gallery.

Oklahoma City rests at the intersection of many highways that cross the continental US. OKC is known for Boomers and Sooners, sunsets, beauty queens, red dirt, tornado alley, and a capital with an oil derrick on site. The variety contained promotes why the locality of Oklahoma City is the perfect place to explore how we identify and reflect on the many guiding "forces" impacting our creative lives. All of us are affected by a variety of influences from history, culture, identity, geography, politics, scientific discovery, mentors, and experience to name some. This conference hopes to address how these spheres of influence impact us as artists, educators, and students and how this manifests in our photography as discovery, investigations, and recording in our worlds.
