In its sixth year, the Skirvin Paseo Artist Creativity Exposition, or S.P.A.C.E., is a unique urban artist-in-residency program in which emerging visual artists who are members of the Paseo Arts Association can apply for a yearlong on-site residency in Oklahoma City’s premier downtown landmark hotel.

The Skirvin’s selection committee, consisting of leaders in the local art community from the Paseo Art Association and representatives of The Skirvin Hilton Hotel, selected Raglin from a distinguished pool of artists.

Currently working in analog collage and resin, Raglin creates ethereal, whimsical collage works. She can be found knee-deep in vintage illustration books and magazines plucked from thrift stores and half-priced book shops. Raglin earned her bachelor’s degree in studio art from Oklahoma Baptist University in 2012. In 2014, she picked up an X-ACTO knife and began working to create collage works on paper. Raglin is a 2015 Artist Inc. Live OKC Fellow and works as the director of museum experience at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum.
