High School Students Attend Portfolio Day at the OKCMOA

Students from across Oklahoma gathering for the annual Portfolio Day event at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

On Friday students from across the state attended the 2017 Portfolio Day sponsored by the Oklahoma City Museum of Art (OKCMOA) and the Oklahoma Art Education Association. 20 college and university representatives from in-state and out-of-state schools met with junior and senior high school students to review their portfolios and to provide information on their visual arts programs.

Students also had the opportunity to tour the OKCMOA free of charge where they were treated to the exhibition, The Complete WPA Collection: 75th Anniversary as well as works from the OKCMOA’s permanent collection. 

OAEA wants to acknowledge the generosity of the Oklahoma City Museum of Art who allows this event to take place with great assistance from their staff, particularly Bryon Chambers who helped organize the event. They open the doors for students to visit the entire museum that day, free of charge.
