Thrift said Knapp is working on a sculpture installation that requires 70-100 pieces of work.
"Obviously, I am extremely proud of Ms. Knapp as is the entire Art Department faculty," he said. "Being accepted to a juried competition like Momentum is a huge victory for any young artist, whether they are students or professionals within the art community. Her acceptance into Momentum is also an inspiration for her peers."
Knapp said she is excited to have the opportunity with other young Oklahoma artists.
"I'm excited to meet people in the same range as me and network across the state," she said. "I haven't really been involved in the Oklahoma City scene before."
The event will be open 8 p.m. to midnight on opening weekend March 7-8 at the Farmer's Public Market, 311 S. Klein Ave., Oklahoma City.
