Hear a dozen shutterbugs talk about their creative development, in five minutes or less, at the second “Photo Slam.”

Courtney Silva May 18th, 2011

Get a glimpse of what goes into the finished product when 12 Oklahoma photographers show you their artistic process during the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition’s second annual “Photo Slam,” scheduled for Thursday at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch.

“Photo Slam” is a departure from the typical artist lecture or exhibit. Each photographer will have five minutes to demonstrate how he or she works — using a variety of methods such as slides, digital projections and other tactics before a gong signals the speech’s end, said Kelsey Karper, OVAC associate director.

“We wanted to come up with a unique way to showcase Oklahoma photographers,” she said. “It’s a cool opportunity to see how differently each one of them works and what they do. It’s very fast-paced, so it keeps things interesting.”

Afterward, attendees can join the artists and other guests on the roof terrace of OKCMOA for “Cocktails on the Skyline.”

“Photo Slam” begins at 7 p.m. in the museum’s Noble Theatre. Entrance to the event is included in the price of the museum admission, which is $5 after 5 p.m. Advanced reservations are recommended.
