2020 Tulsa Artist Fellowship Arts Integration Award recipient Anita Fields is featured in the second iteration of STOREFRONT, a series of artistic interventions occurring in commercial spaces in Tulsa, OK, presented by Tulsa Artist Fellowship. This community-based, visual arts collaboration connected individuals through the power of the arts during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 140 participants working in isolation examine the void left by our absence at family dinners, feasts, and community gatherings.
"As an Osage artist, I want to highlight our language; presented in the Osage orthography is the phrase; be good to one another. Kind words to remember as the storefront transforms space where each participant will drop off their completed works, and in reciprocity receive a gift in gratitude for their contributions," said Fields.
Fields' window installation is now on view at 107 M.L.K. Jr Blvd. (just north of Que Gusto) through February 14, 2021. This public artwork is free and open to the public. Visitors are invited to visit the installation anytime. Tulsa Artist Fellowship welcomes people with disabilities. For questions about accessibility or to request an accommodation, please email email@example.com or call 918.591.2461. Requests should be made at least one-week prior to viewing.
With the belief that arts are critical to the advancement of cultural citizenship, Tulsa Artist Fellowship supports both local and national artists while enriching the Tulsa community. Tulsa Artist Fellowship is a George Kaiser Family Foundation initiative.
