The NWOSU Art Society was officially welcomed to Northwestern in Spring 2004 after two freshmen students decided there needed to be an on-campus club to support the arts. The small group organized and produced its very first art show within only a few weeks of forming. The first art show took place April 16-25 in the J.W. Martin Library. Certificates were presented to the winners, and the Presidential Partners provided the prize money for the students. The club was first named Student Advocates for the Arts but was later changed to the NWOSU Art Society.
Our mission is to encourage, stimulate, and maintain an excellence in the field of art at Northwestern Oklahoma State University. Our goal is to heighten awareness both on campus and in the community of the many cultural backgrounds and talents of the students, through which all will foster a synthesis of the appreciation, knowledge, and awareness of art in all styles and mediums.
Some of our goals are:
To promote creativity, have fun, try different mediums, expand our knowledge, make friends, and serve our community.
For any questions or more information, contact sponsor Tom Cornell at firstname.lastname@example.org or in Jesse Dunn 218.
