In the News: Welcome reception for Vicky Berry in Oklahoma City

On January 30, President Burns Hargis and First Cowgirl Ann Hargis introduced our new director, Vicky Berry, at a reception hosted by Laura Warriner at [Artspace] at Untitled, her Oklahoma City gallery and project space. Last Sunday, the Oklahoman published some photos of the event and a brief description, which we thought we’d share!

Berry previously was curator and executive director of Utah State University’s Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.
