KOSU, IAO seek Oklahomans to put their creativity ‘On the Record’

Art to grace station’s new Film Row studios

OKLA. CITY — KOSU, the NPR station serving Oklahoma City at 91.7, and Individual Artists of Oklahoma are encouraging the public to bring new life to the station’s old records through their “Art on the Record” project. The station will pull hundreds of old records that are no longer in use from storage to serve as vinyl canvasses for artists young and old to create unique pieces of art that KOSU will display at its new Oklahoma City studios in the Hart Building in Film Row, 726 W. Sheridan.              

“This will be a fun way for our Oklahoma neighbors to get in the groove with KOSU as we celebrate the opening of our new broadcast facility in historic Film Row,” said Kelly Burley, KOSU Director. “We are excited to see the final creations and to show them off in our new home.”

Participants can join a live, family-friendly painting project at the IAO gallery during the monthly Film Row Frolic, sponsored by Fowler Auto Group Aug. 16. Participants are asked to pre-register for that event at Records can also be picked up for people to create artwork on their own schedules at the KOSU studios in Stillwater or Oklahoma City, the Spy studio or IAO Gallery. The deadline to return the finished works of art to IAO is Sept. 9.

“Individual Artists of Oklahoma is looking forward to KOSU’s expansion into historic Film Row and we are thrilled to partner with the station to encourage residents to unleash their creativity through this unique project,” said Kendall Brown, IAO Executive Director.

KOSU will unveil the finished art pieces during its grand opening celebration Sept. 20, which will also feature live, local music and food vendors. A panel of judges will also select some of the best and most original art for prizes.

Individual Artists of Oklahoma is a 501c(3) organization founded in 1979 and is committed to sustaining and encouraging emerging and established artists in all media who are intellectually and aesthetically provocative or experimental in subject matter of technique.
