A "Big" Week for the Arts (Sep 20, 2007)
Shortly after Oklahoma’s most traumatic event, the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building, William I. Koch, a businessman and art collector with strong Oklahoma ties, temporarily loaned his art collection to the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and subsequently to the State Fair Park, in an effort to lift the city’s spirits. The diverse exhibit included works by Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Charles Russell. But the pieces that reportedly stole most people’s attention were the five giant, rather oddly proportioned sculptures created by Fernando Botero one of the subjects of this week’s arts and entertainment report from the Oklahoma Gazette’s own Joe Wertz.
(The exhibit is at the OKCMOA until December 2.)
