Momentum Tulsa 2011: Spotlight Artist Jacquelyn Sparks

As a part of Momentum Tulsa, three artists received $1,500 Momentum Spotlight commissions to create new artwork. The Momentum Spotlight artists receive cash commissions and three months of interaction with the guest curators. Selected Momentum Spotlight artists are Brian Letzig of Stillwater, Jacquelyn Sparks of Oklahoma City, and Jessica Tankersley of Norman.

Sparks is incorporating research on her family history to tell an unbelievable story. Reconstructing Charles Proctor is a photographic project which illustrates the story of her mysterious grandfather whose work took him around the globe, leaving behind clues and artifacts that are helping the artist piece together his life. Sparks is a student at OU seeking a master of fine arts in photography.

Read more about the Momentum Spotlight projects in the Sept/Oct issue of Art Focus Oklahoma.

Momentum Tulsa opens Saturday, October 8 from 8-Midnight at Living Arts, 307 E. Brady, Tulsa, featuring live music by The Parakeet Chiefs and DEERPEOPLE. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door. 

The exhibition will remain on display through October 27. More information at
