Bartlesville Fine Arts Center

Crafton Tull designed the Bartlesville Fine Arts Center to consolidate all of the school's fine arts programs into one multipurpose facility.  The signature feature of the Center is the 1,208-seat auditorium, which includes three levels of seating, fine-tuned acoustics, and a state-of-the-art lighting system.  The surrounding classrooms’ design ensures each artistic medium has ample space and equipment to be taught and appreciated. High ceilings, carpeted floors, beveled walls, and curtains contribute to the music rooms’ excellent acoustics. Drama students benefit from updated stagecraft technology, while art students now have space to accommodate various mediums, including large easel areas, incoming glaze bins, and kilns. The façade of the building enhances the Streamline Art Deco style of the campus, built in 1939.
