Verbode Urban Core Artists is an artist-run curatorial and event collaborative founded in OKC in 2016 by Verbode real estate owner Sarah Bytiqi, and artist Christie Owen. The real estate group provides Owen with a showroom for the year and hosts quarterly openings. Owen elected to invite her fellow artists to participate as an initiative to attract more attention and support for local artists. The co-founders want to support professional artists and emphasize the importance of local exposure in our community.
Christie Owen organizes and curates visually stimulating and dynamic art installations that reflect the flourishing creativity of the Oklahoma art community with the mission to develop new relationships and encourage networking through an understanding and appreciation of art’s vital role in our community.
Sarah Bytiqi offers the space at Verbode as a home for art and to engage a diverse cross-section of the public by hosting free and open to the public exhibits in an alternative space.
Verbode Urban Core Artists will donate a portion of all art sales from the show to The Homeless Alliance.
Verbode is a residential real estate brokerage located in the TAP Architecture Building in downtown Oklahoma City. Visitors can view the exhibit Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm between April 18, 2019 and July 12, 2019.
