Now at Price Tower: "Bruce Goff: A Creative Mind"
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, Oklahoma – On today's installment of StudioTulsa, we're discussing an interesting new exhibit at the Price Tower Arts Center in Bartlesville. The show opens today, and it's co-presented by the Price Tower and the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art at the University of Oklahoma; it's called "Bruce Goff: A Creative Mind." Our guest is Scott Perkins, a curator at the Price Tower, who tells us about this show, which explores the inspirations, ideas, and influences of one of the most experimental and innovative architects of the 20th century. Bruce Goff was also, famously, a professor of architecture at OU, and he actually lived in the Price Tower in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Goff was once termed the "High Priest of Individualism" by Architectural Forum, and in this show we encounter an array of his distinctive paintings and artifacts as well as original and reproduction drawings. Also, several of Goff's works have been re-created for this exhibit through animations and three-dimensional renderings.
