OCU to Host Artist Talk on New Esports Arena Mural

As Oklahoma City University’s esports arena nears completion, mural artist Andrew Horner (aka APSE) will join the OCU community for a discussion on his work in the arena. The artist talk will take place at 11 a.m. on Oct. 8 with both Zoom and Twitch livestreams.

Graffiti artist duo Color Cartel works on a mural project

As part of the Color Cartel graffiti duo, APSE travels from Austin, Texas, to create commissioned murals. He and his partner, IVA, have completed hundreds of pieces of artwork, spanning from New York City to Honolulu, Hawaii.

APSE has joined the team preparing the new esports arena for Team NOVA, OCU’s esports team. The club facility will house gaming systems, state-of-the-art web streaming and audio-visual production equipment, and retro gaming systems. APSE’s mural will complete the space’s retro arcade look.

OCU’s event policy, effective Sept. 30, prohibits gatherings of more than 10 people. In accordance with this policy, this event will not be open to the public.

The new esports arena is set to open in 2021. To get a sneak peek of the space, join the artist talk Zoom session by registering at okcu.edu/apse. or at twitch.tv/oklahomacityuniversity.
