OKC May Event: Tech Meets Art

May 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm America/Chicago Timezone
[Artspace] at Untitled
1 Northeast 3rd Street
Oklahoma City
OK 73104

Vast capabilities exist within our tech community, and we strongly believe in the value of considering all current options. For our networking happy hour, in collaboration with [Artspace] at Untitled, join us for an exploratory look at how technology can be utilized to create fantastical art and more. With breakout sessions from skilled instructor on fiber arts and technological crafts Kristal Boulden, and the chance to mingle with industry peers and meet new faces – discover something new and prepare to be inspired! Additionally, plan to check out the current exhibit featuring “Dislocated Histories” by David Crimson, which uses “old” processes of painting to speak on “new” processes or technologies.

Cash bar and small plates will be provided by our corporate sponsors Devon Energy and Pinnacle Business Systems.

Our art gallery venue is provided by [Artspace] at Untitled; free parking is available in the lot north of the gallery.
