ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

Throughout its history, The Skirvin Hilton hotel has been a partner of the arts community in downtown Oklahoma City. The hotel has hosted major local and regional arts organizations including the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center, the local Lyric Theater, Oklahoma City Philharmonic, and the Paseo Arts Association. 

The Artist in Residence program is helping to continue that tradition by supporting one individual, local artist each year. This artist, chosen in partnership with the Paseo Arts Association, sets up his or her workshop inside the hotel and shares the creative process with Guests. This gives visitors the unique opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look into the artist's work.

OUR PAST ARTISTS

Our first Artist in Residence was Romy Owens, an artist who combines her loves for needlework and photography in her unique work. Romy has an M.A. in photography from Oklahoma City University, but she has worked in a dark room since she was 10 years old. Over the last seven years, she has been featured in many exhibitions including five solo exhibitions, three duo exhibitions, and 60 group exhibitions. She has also curated many art shows in OKC.
