Nurture was funded through Downtown Oklahoma City Initiatives’ Artist Invitational program. Mayorca was one of two artists chosen to install projects in downtown Oklahoma City. The Artist Invitational serves as a platform for local artists to submit their ideas for public art and placemaking in downtown Oklahoma City, and it has a dual purpose: to inspire conversation, whimsy, and wonder downtown, and to activate unused space or reinvent existing space in the urban core.
