OCU Hosts Art Auction for Music Scholarships

Oklahoma City University will auction approximately 50 works from the collection of Oklahoma City art dealer Norman Wilks during an event April 13.

The public may view the collection, which includes works by Jean Richardson, Mike Larsen, R.C. Gorman and Jerome Tiger, at the Norick Art Center at N.W. 26th Street and Blackwelder Avenue from 3 to 6 p.m. and bid on items selected for a silent auction. A live auction will be held for invited guests.

Auction proceeds will benefit the Robert and Florence Birdwell Endowed Vocal Scholarship for students in the Wanda L. Bass School of Music.

Wilks, who died in June 2011, left his entire estate to OCU.
