Join us Friday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m. for our Friday Financial Forum. We will meet at the Friday Forum Room at Arvest's East Side Branch, located at 4225 S.E. Adams Rd. in Bartlesville, Okla.*

This week Val Callaghan, managing director of the Bartlesville Community Center will be bringing an update of what’s happening this year at the Bartlesville Community Center. Val was born and raised in Southern Africa and moved to Bartlesville to attend OKWU. She came to the Bartlesville Community Center in 2008 as executive assistant and was named managing director of the center in November 2010. 

The Bartlesville Community Center opened in January of 1982 and was immediately recognized as one of the finest performing arts halls in the country. The modern architectural design was the vision of William Wesley Peters, apprentice and protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright, as well as former chief architect of Taliesin West and was created to mesh seamlessly with other remarkable examples of architecture found in Bartlesville, such as the famous Price Tower, Frank Lloyd Wright's only skyscraper.

Frank Lloyd Wright's widow, Olgivanna Lloyd Wright, selected most of the decor, adding a modern, elegant finish to the interior. Perhaps most notably, remarkable are the crystalline light fixtures suspended like icicles from the ceiling in Community Hall. The world’s largest cloisonné artwork, a mural that is 25-feet long which depicting a stylized northeastern Oklahoma countryside can be seen upon entering the foyer.

The acoustically superb performance hall seats over 1,700 and is the main focus of the Bartlesville Community Center and has played host to an amazing array of events, world-renowned symphony performances, concert events, ballet, Broadway in Bartlesville stage productions and musicals, lectures and seminars.

We will also have a special Inauguration Day presentation beginning at 10:45 a.m. (11:45 a.m. Washington D.C. time!) that you will not want to miss!
