Vaunda Knapp, a senior fine art major from Ardmore, will see her work featured in the Momentum Tulsa art show.
She says her work, a three-dimensional sculpture titled “Lesser,” is an attempt to convey sensations that individuals with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and similar mental conditions experience.

Dr. James Galbraith, known for research into the causes and consequences of income inequality, tackles a related problem in his new book. The End of Normal argues that, on the grandest scale, economic problems are no longer easily solved by the standard answers of austerity or stimulus and new approaches are needed.
Galbraith is scheduled to deliver the keynote address for seventh annual Ray and Mary Giles Symposium for Citizenship and Public Service beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 29 in Te Ata Memorial Auditorium at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.
The event is free and open to the public.
