Art Crit Night is a free to attend, public art critique event featuring two local artists who present their work during a curator-led discussion. Artists, arts professionals, collectors, and anyone curious about joining the conversation can look forward to a relaxed evening of engaging discussion and mingling with art friends.



Resonator Institute | 325 E Main St, Norman, OK 73069


Thursday, May 23rd, 2024 | 5:00PM–8:00PM

Two artists will showcase their work to attendees and our guest curator will lead a discussion of their work. We will tailor the discussion to the specific needs of the artist, whether that is feedback on a new body of work, an application, suggestions on where to exhibit, or just general career advice.

If you are not an artist, you can still attend! The audience members play a key role in giving the artists an opportunity to practice talking about their work and are invited to ask questions or offer constructive feedback during the event. Join us for a networking hour from 5:00PM-6:00PM followed by the critique.

Applications for the next Art Crit Night will open in late Summer.
