About S P A C E:
(Skirvin/ Paseo Artist Creativity Experience)
One selected studio artist will enjoy studio and gallery space, plus a $1000/month
stipend, for a period of one year in the historic Skirvin Hilton hotel in downtown
Oklahoma City. The studio will be open to the public during set business hours (hours
to be determined in collaboration with the Skirvin and the selected artist), and
studio space will be provided at no cost to the artist, along with the stipend
and complimentary meals in the hotel’s employee cafeteria.
Selected artist for 2012-2013 is Romy Owens, who will continue her residency through
early September. Through her time at the Skirvin, Owens has engaged hotel guests,
staff, and visitors alike with her “Look at Me: Don’t Look at Me” photo booth project,
and who has also used studio time to create intensive, ambitious work for prestigious
regional exhibitions including
Concept:OK, Focus: OK-KC, ArtNow, Art 365, and many others.
“This is a great residency for a serious-minded artist with a thriving, consistent
studio practice,” says Owens. “For artists who will use it, this is a great opportunity.”

In addition to keeping regular studio hours as set in cooperation with the Skirvin,
the Selected Artist should plan to engage hotel visitors through quarterly events.
(Examples may be artist talks, demonstrations, open studio receptions, or other
similar events).

About the Skirvin:

For over 100 years, the important and historically significant Skirvin Hilton Hotel
has been synonymous with purpose, elegance and innovation.  Since its inception
the hotel’s identification with and support of the arts has been legendary.  Major
local and regional arts organizations including the Oklahoma City Philharmonic,
the Oklahoma Theater Center, The Oklahoma City Ballet, and Allied Arts have been
showcased at the Skirvin.

Following in that tradition, the Skirvin wishes to continue its award-winning Artist-in-Residency
program for a second year. In its inaugural year, this program earned a Best Practice
- Community Relations Award for the Skirvin Hilton. The goal of this program is
to support one individual living Oklahoma artist each year in the creation of new
work.  The Skirvin will provide a working art studio where the artist can create
his/her work and offer hotel guests and visitors the opportunity to observe and
participate in one artist’s creative process.
About the Paseo Arts Association:

The Skirvin has partnered with the Paseo Arts Association to present the residency
and to assist in the selection of the residency artist.  The Paseo Arts Association,
located in Oklahoma’s Historic Paseo Arts District, works year-round to create opportunities
for cultural exchange between artists and the public.  The PAA coordinates events
(monthly First Friday Gallery Walks, annual Paseo Arts Festival, FEAST microfunding
program for artists), and educational programming (PEEPS afterschool program) that
are open to all.
