OU recognizes Chickasaw Nation support
NORMAN — A bronze sculpture by Paul Moore, University of Oklahoma artist-in-residence, recently was presented to the Chickasaw Nation for their support of the OU Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts.
The sculpture depicts Mary Thompson “Te
Ata” Fisher (1895-1995), award-winning storyteller and trained actress of the Chickasaw Nation, whose one-woman interpretations of Native American folklore earned her national and international acclaim throughout her 70-year career.
The Chickasaw Nation has served as the “Arts! Arts! Arts!” presenting sponsor four of the past five years and has made generous donations to support OU student artists.
