Boards of Directors

The Oklahoma Arts Institute is governed by a statewide board of directors comprised of volunteers from across the state who meet regularly to set policies, oversee finances, and create long-range action plans. The Oklahoma Arts Institute Foundation, a supporting organization that manages OAI’s endowment account, is governed by a separate statewide board. Members from both boards serve on committees and assist in community drives, special events, and other fundraising activities.
