Price Arts Tower Plans Fun in 3D

CONTEMPORARY CREATIVITY: Works of brilliant artist Dennis Oppenheim, right, are being displayed in the exhibit “Indoors, Outdoors “ at the Price Arts Tower Center in Bartlesville through May 22. With the artist are Richard Townsend and Monica Montagut of the Center. Oppenheim’s artwork is a fusion between sculpture (indoors) and vernacular architecture (outdoors). Indoors, Outdoors presents a series of scale models and drawings that exemplify this new type of sculptural/architectural hybrid.

The Oppenheim exhibit is the second edition of The Price Tower Arts Center’s Contemporary Artists Initiative. Early known for his earthwork, kinetic and conceptual art, the artist has recently turned his attention to the relationship between sculpture and architecture. The exhibition includes new work as well as a large outdoor sculpture, “Domestic Quarrel,” and is organized by Price Tower Arts Center and presented with the assistance of ConocoPhillips, the Oklahoma Arts Council and the National Endowment of Arts.

The Price Tower Arts Center, located at 510 Dewey Avenue in Bartlesville, is the landmark destination for art, architecture and design in an arts complex whose centerpiece is Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece, the Price Tower. This international landmark contains permanent and changing exhibition galleries: the Inn at Price Tower, a 21 room high-design hotel within Wright’s skyscraper; the elegant Copper Restaurant and Bar; and the Wright Place museum store.
