Bartlesville in the News


First ArtNight of the year presented by the Bartlesville Art Association

Posted: January 14, 2019

The public is invited to the first ArtNight of the year presented by the Bartlesville Art Association (BAA).


Guest speaker will be Addie Roanhorse, renowned Osage artist. She uses aspects of her indigenous culture in her personal mixed-media work and in her role as Senior Graphic Designer for the Osage Nation.

 

Roanhorse will share the challenge of using cross-discipline design working with architects and museum developers for the “Momentary”, a new museum being built in Bentonville, Arkansas, by Crystal Bridges Museum. She has created design elements for the building inspired by traditional Osage attire and the history of the land around the Momentary. The patterns are printed into the building’s entryway, loading dock, and elevator tower glass, and play a functional role in filtering light.

 

She will also discuss the best-selling book and upcoming movie, “Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI.” She is a direct descendant of Henry Roan, who was written about in the book.

 

The daughter of two successful artists, she is a resident of the Osage Nation, where her daughter Anya has begun to follow in her artistic footsteps.

 

ArtNight will be held on Tuesday, January 22, at 6:30 p.m., in the BAA Design Center, 500 S. Dewey Avenue (next to Price Tower). Refreshments will be served. The event is free and the public is welcome. For more information visit bartlesvilleartassociation.org.
