Our Mission

We support experimental and thought-provoking artists of all disciplines and create space for artists to impact the community.

Our History

IAO started as a grassroots organization in 1979. Founded by three poets, the vision was to create an organization to support a group of artists who went against the grain.

Since then, IAO has grown to become the bastion of creative freedom for Oklahoma’s artistic community, with a space that supports programs for poets, visual artists, filmmakers, musicians, dancers and more. The space hosts events for artists, our community, and shares the space with non-profit organizations. We focus on developing quality, inclusive programming with artists who push limits, experiment with media, ask challenging questions, and who bring a different perspective.
