Price Tower Arts Center offers a one-of-a-kind experience. After touring Frank Lloyd Wright’s only realized skyscraper, visitors can stay at the Inn at Price Tower, a boutique hotel honoring the design and style of its famed architect. It has taken its place on the registry for Historic Hotels of America alongside other incredible sites such as The Broadmoor of Colorado and the Mohonk Mountain House of New York. In addition to exploring and staying at the Price Tower, guests can opt for high-rise dining at the Copper Restaurant + Bar featuring expansive landscape views and magnificent sunsets from the 15th floor of the Price Tower.
Recognized as one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most remarkable buildings, it was named a National Historic Landmark in 2007 by U.S.Secretary of the Interior, Dirk Kempthorne (one of only 11 in Oklahoma), and was nominated as a World Heritage site, placing it among one of the greatest architectural achievements of the 20th century. The Price Tower was Frank Lloyd Wright’s pioneering experiment in the multi-use skyscraper: a tall, slim, richly detailed structure whose purpose was to combine business offices, retail and apartments.
Today, the Price Tower Arts Center continues to follow Wright’s original design intent by offering a variety of opportunities for guests to learn from and explore one of the master’s greatest achievements. Modern Art exhibitions are on display in the first floor gallery and historical collections can be viewed in the 2nd floor gallery. Also on the 2nd floor, is the Architectural Study Center, a research library that provides scholars and historians access to rare documents and drawings by Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff. Appointments can be made with the Price Tower Curator at (918) 336-4949 to reserve access to the Study Center.
