Renegades: Bruce Goff and the American School at Bizzell
2018-2019 Academic Year
Opens Sept. 22, 2018
The Christopher C. Gibbs College of Architecture is partnering with OU Libraries to develop an exhibition that will highlight pieces of the American School Archive. OU Libraries Dean Rick Luce recently expressed his enthusiasm about this partnership. “When we began discussions about the creation of an American School Archive and exhibition in the Bizzell Memorial Library, Dean Butzer quoted Bruce Goff’s phase ‘do not try to remember.’ Truly innovative, transformative works disrupt tradition to carve their own place in history. Just as Goff inverted the teacher, pupil relationship to emphasize student creativity at OU, the University Libraries has become the intellectual crossroads of the University. Through spaces, technologies, collections and resources, the libraries have similarly adopted a role of enabling students to bring their ideas to life. We are thrilled to welcome this archive into our Western History Collections and to collaborate on an exhibition highlighting this pinnacle moment in American architecture and pedagogy.” For more information, contact Angela Person (firstname.lastname@example.org).
