A collection of works by celebrated architect Bruce Goff will be on display in Norman beginning this weekend. Featuring projects never realized, the exhibit offers several original drawings along with 3-D renderings and computer animations based on Goff's plans. The exhibition will include a symposium and reception.

Special events that coincide with this display are also being planned by Friends of Kebyar, an organization devoted to "non mainstream" architecture. After the run in Norman the exhibit will be on display in Bartlesville at the Price Tower Arts Center beginning January 21, 2011.

The exhibition is a collaboration between the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art in Norman, Price Tower Arts Center in Bartlesville and the OU Colleges of Architecture and Engineering. Extra spice was added through animations and 3-D renderings created by Skyline Ink of Oklahoma City.

This work was inspired by Bruce Goff’s breathtaking designs for a
nondenominational chapel at the University of Oklahoma. The chapel has been
constructed with an array of various prisms advancing out into space. Refraction
of light and reflection color break up the serene environment and awaken it with
new energy.
