Price Tower Arts Center debuts repurposed, upcycled exhibit



responded is what makes the show "? the inaugural exhibition for the center's new "Triennial" series, dubbed "3-logy" "? so intriguing.

For example, UK designer Tracy Kendall bathed a wall in jigsaw puzzle pieces, besting any paper or paint. Austin, Texas-based artist Alyson Fox used watercolors and colored pencil to dress up the cover of a forgotten novel called "Raintree County" with images of pigs and a hook-handed girl. Florida's Zac Freeman glued various objects "? including buttons, dice and Scrabble tiles "? to a board to form a woman's face.

All in all, more than 30 pieces are on display in "Imaginative Qualities."

"While not all of the projects presented here offer practical or realizable solutions, they ask the audience critically to examine their own habits, their community's environmental policies, and, in an election year, the environmental policies of the presidential candidates," said Michaela Merryday, University of Tulsa art history professor and co-curator of the exhibit, in a press release. "Simultaneously, the exhibition seeks to inspire the audience to think about changes in their own lives and communities that would contribute toward a sustainable future."

The exhibit runs through Jan. 6, 2009. For more information, call (918) 336-4949.
