Art By Architects

The American Institute of Architects Central Oklahoma Chapter is excited to host Art by Architects .. The exhibition will showcase artwork by members of the American Institute of Architects, Central Oklahoma Chapter and will be exhibited during Architecture Week 2019 next April. The exhibition is open to all members of the AIA Central Oklahoma Chapter.  
All entry forms and electronic submissions must be received no later than February 5, 2019. Each entrant may enter up two pieces of art for consideration.
All works must be submitted electronically, to be considered, via email or drop box. Only submissions following the proper format as outlined below will be accepted. Send the your artwork image in a JPEG format in a file no larger than 10 MB. Email to aiacoc@cox.net with the subject line: Art by Architects by (your name). For example: Art by Architects by Jon Smith.
All submitted work must be original and have been created in the past five years. All objects and installations must be designed to be exhibited on walls, on the floor or on pedestals. Works to be hung from walls must be constructed and wired on the back to accommodate installation using appropriate hooks, eyes and wires. Framing should be to professional standards. Wall hung objects aren't restricted by size but please consider the weight since they will be wall hung. Sculpture and other 3rd dimensional media must be structurally sound and will be displayed on platforms, tables or on the floor.  All other media (e.g. digital media) are welcome to be submitted.  The artist must provide the floor area space requirements for its presentation as part of the entry form under "size" (example: "4'x5' Projection screen, projector placed on 18"x18"x18" box 10' away from wall.").  The artist must provide the devices by which it will be displayed (e.g. projector, computer and screen, etc.)."
We are partnering with the Individual Artist Gallery (IAO) and the works will be insured against theft and loss while on display.
The AIA Art by Architects Committee will select the pieces for the show and notify the entrants no later than January 25, 2019. Selected participants will then receive details for delivery and additional information on the exhibition.
The Art By Architects Exhibit will open on Friday, April 5th at the IAO Gallery and will remain on display at the gallery through April 26, 2018.

Request for Oklahoma State University AIAS

AIA Central Oklahoma Firms:
My name is Scott Cornelius, I am the Vice President of the Oklahoma State University chapter of the American Institute of Architecture Students. AIAS OSU is seeking growth in activity at the national level as one of our main goals for this year. Our chapter has grown and developed immensely in recent years, and it is the view of our Executive Board that we as a chapter can benefit AIAS on a national level. Forum is the national AIAS conference at which students network, learn, participate in national AIAS and elect leaders for the coming year. In the interest of helping to better AIAS at a national level I myself will be running for the position of 2019-2020 South Quad Director, a position which oversees all chapters in the southern area of the country along with Mexico and Puerto Rico.

This year Forum will be held in Seattle, Washington, from December 29th- January 1st. We have more students interested in attending Forum than we have ever had before; 17 students. Obviously we would love to take them all (and I would love to have them there to support me in the elections), but our chapter alone does not have the funds necessary to assist every student sufficiently. For this reason I am searching for organizations and individuals who  would be willing to contribute to our fundraising efforts for Forum. Any amount you would be willing to give would make a great impact on our students and chapter. If you would like to make a contribution please contact me at scott.cornelius@okstate.edu or call me at (806) 681-1870.

Thank you for your consideration,
Scott Cornelius
