Oklahoma Contemporary serves as a nexus for the creative community and identifies ways to make meaningful connections between veterans and contemporary art, artists and creative practice. Ten percent of Oklahoma's adult population are veterans of the U.S. military. By engaging in studio practice, veterans discover new ways to connect with each other and their community. The arts are proven to build resilience, strengthen coping skills and improve self-esteem and well-being. Oklahoma Contemporary's program employs teaching artists and university faculty to support veterans in the technical, intellectual and creative aspects of developing their studio practice.
