One of the most important art figures in the history of Oklahoma has the spotlight during this landmark exhibition.
True to Oklahoma’s artistic heritage and strong Native American culture, monumental figure Oscar Brousse Jacobson once said, “It may now be considered old-fashioned, but I seem to prefer to paint the world unconquered by man, unviolated by human greed, a world untouched by misery and despair.” One of the preeminent figures in Oklahoma’s art history, Jacobson helped to found the Association of Oklahoma Artists in the 1930s and was a prolific artist himself.
