The Norick-Hulsey Gallery

The Nona Jean Hulsey Art Gallery, located in the Norick Art Center on the Oklahoma City University Campus, is the focus of the university's participation in the visual arts. The gallery provides a contemporary exhibition space for significant and challenging exhibitions by local and national artists and art organizations. The Hulsey Gallery affords the School of Visual Arts student educational opportunities related to collection management and exhibition of art in a professional gallery.

The mission of the Nona Jean Hulsey Art Gallery is to promote the understanding of and extend the audience for contemporary art, and to present exhibitions that inform, inspire and challenge the public, particularly students of Oklahoma City University. The Hulsey Gallery and the Oklahoma City University Art Collection are an integral part of the School of Visual Arts, and it is used daily by visitors, students, and faculty.

The late Madeline Norick, a long-time Societies member, was always an inspiration in providing funding for scholarships for the Norick Art Center. Through her determination, the Center has become the home of creativity and beauty on the OCU campus and the OCU Societies continues to honor her through our sustained giving and through the Norick-Hulsey Gallery Society Award.
