"Robert Indiana 66: Paintings and Sculpture"
2004-04-23 until 2004-07-04
Price Tower Art Center
Bartlesville, OK, USA United States of America

Robert Indiana, a renowned artist of the Pop era, will be unveiling his most recent piece of work.   Sixty-six, a sculpture honoring Robert Indiana’s memories of Phillips 66 in his childhood, will be stationed on the lawn just south of Price Tower Arts Center. Robert Indiana has been honored in many ways for this style.  He has been honored by the U.S. postal service for his LOVE sculpture series. The exhibition will run April 23-July 4, 2004 at Price Tower Arts Center.

Frank Lloyd Wright ’s Price Tower was his pioneering experiment in the multi-use skyscraper: a slim, tall, richly detailed structure, originally designed to combine business offices, shops and apartments. The non-profit Price Tower Arts Center returns to this premise, inviting the public to explore its exhibition galleries, stay in its high-design hotel rooms and dine in its dramatically cantilevered restaurant.

Frank Lloyd Wright built Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, commissioned by Harold C. Price, founder of H.C. Price Company. Completed in 1956, the 19-story building was based on a design originally conceived for St. Mark’s in the Bowery in New York City, but once built on the prairie, Wright called this skyscraper “the tree that escaped the crowded forest.” Lavish in its materials and detailing, the Price Tower is Wright’s tallest built project, and takes its place with the celebrated S.C. Johnson Wax Research Tower as one of his two vertical structures. The 221-foot-tall Price Tower is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and as one of the American Institute of Architects’ seventeen most significant examples of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture. It has also received the AIA’s Twenty-Five Year Award.
