The annual 12×12 Art Fundraiser is an eclectic fusion of works by 175 Oklahoma artists and live entertainment for a memorable one-night-only art event!

Artists create a unique work within the dimensions of 12"x12” and attendees can bid for pieces they want to purchase in an online auction. Proceeds from tickets and artwork sales go towards sustaining OVAC’s mission to grow and develop Oklahoma's visual arts community through education, promotion, connection, and funding.
