Final Free Sunday For PTAC's Goff Exhibition
By Tourism Industry Partner
BARTLESVILLE, OK—Price Tower Arts Center hosts its final Free Sunday event for the exhibition, Bruce Goff: A Creative Mind. The day will feature free admission to the gallery and a craft project for children on April 17th. The craft project will be Bean Mosaics.
The exhibition is a collaborative effort involving Price Tower Arts Center, the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and the Colleges of Architecture and Engineering at the University of Oklahoma. Goff’s original drawings are the primary resource for the exhibition and they are brought to life utilizing 3-D construction models and cinematic photorealistic computer animation. Previously, the objects were only seen in developmental stages, renderings or historic photographs.
“We are very pleased to share this exhibition with our community. Bruce Goff was such a talented architect and, in fact, he called the Price Tower home for a number of years,” said Timothy Boruff, executive director of Price Tower Arts Center.
PTAC will be open from noon to 5 p.m. for the Free Sunday event. The craft will begin at 1 o’clock.
ConocoPhillips, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Oklahoma Arts Council and Furthermore: a program of the J.M. Kaplan Fund are sponsors of Bruce Goff: A Creative Mind. For more information about PTAC or the exhibition, call 918.336.4949 or visit pricetower.org.
