Reception Thursday, September 12, 5-6p
Juror’s talk Thursday, September 12, 6-7p
With nationally prominent jurors and a purchase prize, the introduction of the Cimarron National Works on Paper Invitational competition and exhibition in 1987 cemented OSU’s commitment to innovation. The Cimarron National was put on hiatus in 1995; during the development of the OSU Museum of Art, discussions resumed about its revival. More recently, donors have generously supported that effort, which has been taken up by the Department of Art, Graphic Design, and Art History. The Cimarron National has always interpreted its mandate loosely, including photography, drawing, printmaking, and paper-based relief sculpture in past exhibitions.
