Skirvin Hilton

Artist In Residence

The Skirvin Hilton Hotel is an establishment ingrained in the history of Oklahoma City. Since 1911 the hotel has been at the center of several vibrant arts and culture movements that have transformed the city to the unique cultural destination that it is today.
 
Now, more than a century later, Skirvin Hilton has commenced a unique Artist In Residence program that hosts world-class artists in a one-of-a-kind studio space. This program reinforces the importance of arts in our community and gives all Skirvin Hilton visitors a chance to interact with the artist and witness the evolution of the artwork first-hand.

Marissa Raglin

Current Artist in Residence

Marissa Raglin is an Oklahoma City visual artist. Currently working in analog collage and resin, she can be found knee-deep in vintage illustration books and magazines plucked from thrift stores and half-priced book shops. Raglin creates ethereal, whimsical collage works and earned her BA in Studio Art from Oklahoma Baptist University in 2012. It was not until 2014 that Raglin picked up the Xacto knife and began working in collage. Raglin creates ethereal, whimsical collage works on paper. Raglin is a 2015 Artist Inc. Live OKC Fellow and works as the Director of Museum Experience at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum.

As the 2017-18 Skirvin Hilton Artist in Residence, Raglin will create a new body of collage work as she prepares for a solo exhibition at Mainsite Contemporary Art in Norman, OK in 2018. Along with this new body of work, Raglin invites guests of all ages to stop by the studio to make their very own postcard using vintage imagery. Once the work is created, Raglin will photograph all works and upload images to her website; sharing a traditional form of communication digitally.
