Tulsa's Mayfest Organizers Highlight 'Affordable Art'

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Ever been to an art festival and think you can't afford to buy anything?

This year, Mayfest is highlighting the many artists showcasing artwork under $200.

The "Under 200 Program" is a quick an easy way for people hitting the tent packed streets of downtown Tulsa to know there's affordable art inside.

More than a 120 artists are showcasing their best artwork for all of Tulsa to see.

Some of it's pricey, but Mayfest wants visitors to know which artists are selling their work for less than $200.

Mayfest is giving signs to art exhibitors who sell work for affordable prices.

Artists participating in the program say the signs help shoppers purchase art they once thought was too pricey to buy.

"People often times think art is out of their reach, and they don't realize that they can buy a piece for $40-$50, have it in their homes, it helps their kids appreciate buying art and collecting art," artist Holly Woelber said.

Local artist Kevin Byrne is selling stoneware in his tent for less than $200.

"People stay away if they think everything's way too above their budget," he said. "People are careful with their money now. I'm glad that they're promoting the show that way they do a lot to promote the show,"

Artists will be downtown until 8 p.m. and will reopen at 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Coming up tonight at 9&10 we'll speak with Tulsa Police about some new ways they plan to patrol the streets of Mayfest.
