Nathan Lee: Momentum OKC 2014 Curator

This post is part of our series on Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition's Momentum OKC 2014. 
Guest curators for Momentum OKC are Inclusion in Art founder and artist Nathan Lee and emerging curator, Samantha Dillehay.

Acting as curator for Momentum OKC 2014, Nathan Lee is an artist, curator and art activist from Oklahoma City.

Lee is no stranger to Momentum, as his art was in the very first Momentum in 2002. Since then, he had served on the committee in 2003 and was part of the initial team that helped mold Momentum into the event we know today.
