Are you an artist who is interested in sharing your talents with the Tulsa community? Current opportunities are below.
Calling Tulsa-area artists! Take advantage of a unique opportunity to use your creativity to design an experience at the new Discovery Lab location.
In late 2021, the museum will be opening a new 50,000 square-foot museum in Tulsa’s Gathering Place Park. Discovery Lab projects to see over 250,000 visitors each year, including over 40,000 students on field trips.
While the majority of exhibits are in fabrication, Discovery Lab is seeking local artists who can further the museums’ vision to be “unique to Tulsa” by designing and installing unique, interactive experiences in the Skyways spaces that have yet to be detailed.
The Skyways consist of sky-high rooms designed to give visitors unique experiences high above the interactivity of the exhibit hall floor. Kids of all ages will love navigating the rooms through different climbers and kinesthetic experiences, but Discovery Lab wants to push this already unique experience even further through the addition of original, interactive works of art.
Artists working in a variety of media are welcome to submit original concepts for consideration, including musicians and artists working in digital media.
Please download and review the application packet for more details.

Mother Road Market is Tulsa’s first food hall, developed by the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation. Housed on the 11th Street & South Lewis Avenue in the historic 1939 Scriver-Stevens Co. Grocery Building, Mother Road Market is a vibrant community space, allowing Tulsans and tourists alike to eat, sip, shop and enjoy over 20 different food and retail concepts – all under one roof. Food entrepreneurs have the opportunity to use the small shop model to pilot test their latest concepts, without the financial investment of opening a full-scale restaurant or brick-and-mortar business.
In partnership with ahha Tulsa, Mother Road Market invites Tulsa area artists working in 2D media to display and sell work at Mother Road Market.
Application deadline: April 16th, 2021
