Momentum Tulsa: June 21, 2008 by Kelsey Karper Art doesn’t stand still. Well, at least not at the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition’s annual event Momentum Tulsa: Art Doesn’t Stand Still. Now in its fifth year, the exhibit and party will take place on June 21, 2008 from 8pmMidnight. Once again, it will take over Living Arts and Liggett Studio at 308 & 314 S. Kenosha Ave., as well as the street, creating a block-party atmosphere. Momentum, also held in Oklahoma City each January, is an event created to highlight Oklahoma artists ages 30 and under working in all media including traditional and not-so-traditional painting, photography, sculpture, film, performance and installation. Music on the outdoor stage is provided by local bands. Each year, a committee of young artists and volunteers plans the event. This year, the committee is chaired by Geoffrey Hicks. This group of creative minds never fails to devise new ways to engage the audience with interactive art projects, performances and other surprises. Those who attended the 2007 event will recall a giant lite-brite and a special appearance by Godzilla! To find out what the 2008 Momentum Tulsa has in store and for information about submitting artwork, visit www.MomentumOklahoma.org or call OVAC at 405-232-6991.  About the Author: Kelsey Karper is the Editor of Art Focus Oklahoma and a photographer working in historic and alternative processes.
