Oklahoma City Art School and Orthodontic Arts

Large
Project team

Orthodontic Arts Partnered with Oklahoma City Art School to provide opportunity to showcase artwork in office.

The Oklahoma City Girls Art School is an after school visual arts program for at-risk elementary, middle and high school girls attending school in the Oklahoma City school district. The mission of the Oklahoma City Girls Art School is to empower underserved girls to become successful in life through earning about the arts, the artist and the arts community. Their goal is to provide high quality visual arts training, introduce the girls to successful women artists and give the girls an opportunity to experience how the arts help build our community.

Orthodontic Arts has a lobby area that features a prominently placed gallery wall, which also overlooks a panoramic view of downtown Oklahoma City via floor-to- ceiling paneled windows. The first featured artist(s) at Orthodontic Arts were from the Oklahoma City Girls Art School whose 15 (18” x 24” each) individual canvas paintings of scissor-tailed flycatchers, perched on branches in individual positions, reflect the vibrant, spirited nature of the office environment. As a collective, the pieces unite as though all birds are sitting in one tree, however each section was able to stand alone as its own piece.

“Each girl worked on one canvas but the girls also worked collaboratively to help each other make each canvas come together as a whole,” OKC Girls School of Art Director, Kiona Millirons, said. “The space is contemporary with incredible lines and a beautiful view. The Oklahoma City Girls Art School was so thrilled to work with Orthodontic Arts and the girls were very excited to have their artwork displayed in such a high visibility spot in the Midtown District.”

Orthodontic Arts is proud to support the local art community as well as the mission of The Oklahoma City Girls Art School.
