Bill Barrett at the Atherton Hotel: An Intimate Encounter with a Monumental Craftsman

Bill Barrett sculpture

A giant of the contemporary art world, Bill Barrett is acclaimed for his innovative sculptures and paintings, which have been exhibited in galleries from New York, to Reykjavík, to Zurich, to Kyoto. Oklahoma State University is thrilled to announce that, for the next year, a half dozen of Barrett’s cutting-edge art installations will adorn select sites around campus. Like so much of Barrett’s work, these massive bronze sculptures balance positive and negative space to create a harmonious and dynamic experience for the viewer more frequently associated with dance and the theatrical arts. In addition to the year-long campus-wide exhibition, the Atherton Hotel will also host an exciting on-time event on Wednesday, October 18, at 4 P.M., in which attendees will hear the artist himself speak about his artistic process and his many adventures around the world. Following the talk, there will be a reception and special exhibition of Barrett’s sculptures in our hotel’s intimate Piano Lounge.

Location: Atherton Hotel, Jorns Room (on the 3rd floor), and the Atherton Piano Lounge
