12×12 Art Fundraiser

The 12×12 Art Fundraiser raises funds for all of OVAC’s programs, making Oklahoma a place where visual artists thrive and contribute fully to their communities.

The 12×12 fuses 175 of Oklahoma’s finest artists with local restaurants and live music to create a memorable one-night-only event.

For 12×12, each artist must create a work that conforms to the dimensions of twelve-by-twelve inches. The artwork is sold in a surprising silent and blind auction, meaning bidders will not know what others have bid. Bids for each piece begin at $175. Collectors who fear losing a piece of art in the auction may “Buy It Now” to trump the auction. Attendees may also purchase $5 chances to win prize packages!
