TFA DISTINCTIVE DWELLINGS: Bruce Goff in Bartlesville in partnership with Goff Fest and Price Tower
$20 | $15 | Event starts at 1:00 PM | Saturday, June 10th 2023
The Tulsa area boasts a wide variety of residential architecture from the late 1800s through today. From midcentury modern, craftsman bungalows and colonial revival to contemporary mansions, there is an abundance of interesting homes throughout the region. The goal of TFA’s residential-focused program, Distinctive Dwellings, is to give those who love architecture an opportunity to see behind the doors of the Tulsa area’s most distinctive residences through self-guided exploration.
Join us for TFA Distinctive Dwellings: Bruce Goff in Bartlesville in partnership with Goff Fest and Price Tower. This self-guided tour will include a chance to visit the Price Tower, Frank Lloyd Wright’s tallest building, where Goff’s Bartlesville Studio was located in the late 50s through the 70s and two Bartlesville homes designed by Bruce Goff: The J.R. Akright Home and The Russell Collins Home.
