Renegades: Bruce Goff and the American School of Architecture
Renegades: Bruce Goff and the American School of Architecture showcases the radical pedagogy and practices that emerged from Oklahoma in the mid-century. The exhibition includes over 150 drawings, documents and objects, many of which are drawn from the newly created American School Archive in the OU Libraries Western History Collection. Original drawings by students and architects of the American School highlight the creativity and originality of this work. Organized into three sections, the exhibition tells the story of dramatic change in architectural education. From Beaux-Arts to Bauhaus, the first section, highlights the evolution in American architecture schools at the time. The second section, Bruce Goff and the School of Architecture at OU, showcases the curriculum and student work produced at OU as well as the work of faculty at the time. Bruce Goff and His Legacy, the third section, highlights the built works of American School architects around the world. The exhibit will display through April 5. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
