Enid and the Oklahoma Arts Conference

My personal travel vlog about my trip to Enid, Oklahoma for the Oklahoma Arts Conference. While in Enid, I visited local places such as Simpson’s Old Time Museum, Leonardo’s Children’s Museum, Creative Arts Enid, and Five80 Coffeehouse.

For the trip, I came a day early to spend some quality time in Enid, which was a first. In the past, I had only passed through the town a few times. I managed to film two videos for Uncovering Oklahoma on Tuesday when I arrived. The arts conference itself kept me busy the rest of the time as you can see from my schedule below.

I had a great time at the Oklahoma Arts Conference. The one next year will be in Oklahoma City, so I am considerating going to it again next year. I would recommend it to any professional in the arts field.

That’s it for this update! Stay tuned for the video on Simpson’s Old Time Museum (coming tomorrow) and Leonardo’s Children’s Museum (next week).

She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Oklahoma and is a scientist for a local biopharmaceutical company that specializes in producing therapeutic antibodies and proteins.

Under Her Wing

Under Her Wing was the Universe Site Tour Preview

Good morning, everyone!

As I’m writing this, I’m in Enid for the Oklahoma Arts Conference. While here, I’ve also filmed some future stories for Uncovering Oklahoma. Since it is Thursday, I’m sharing this video of artist romy owens giving a site tour of Under Her Wing was the Universe in Enid, Oklahoma for the conference on October 24, 2017. During the tour, romy discusses the story behind the project and gives a status update.

I also filmed two interviews on some neat places in Enid on Tuesday, so those will be coming out on future updates.

Dr. Katrina Menard

Dr. Katrina Menard Profile

In this Yes! Science! profile, Dr. Katrina Menard gives a talk about her work at the Sam Noble Museum in Norman, Oklahoma. She also gives a behind the scenes look of the museum’s collection of invertebrates, so this profile is more of presentation than an interview. We did film an interview, but it was decided that this video was better and not to use the other.

Dr. Katrina Menard is originally from northern Virginia and is currently the curator of recent invertebrates at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History. She earned her master’s and Ph.D. in entomology from Texas A&M University and has worked in several museums, including the Smithsonian and the American Museum of Natural History. Her expertise is in true bugs (Heteroptera), and she has traveled around the world to study their diversity and relationships with plants, which many rely on for their life-cycle. She enjoys natural history in a broader sense, and sharing her love of insects with others.
