This past September, the Tulsa Ballet gave the world premiere of a brand-new work commissioned by the Philbrook Museum. Called Pentaptych, the music was composed by Ryan Lott, a Los Angeles-based musician and founder of the electronica ensemble Son Lux, and realized by Lott together with violinists Hajnal Pivnick and Rob Moose and cellist Eric Byers.

On this edition of ST, we learn about a striking new show on view at Philbrook, "Innovative Impressions," which will run through September 9th. Per the Philbrook website, this exhibit "explores an under-studied aspect of three Impressionists' careers: their groundbreaking prints and the techniques they developed through collaboration and experimentation. The artists of the Impressionist group are known for their innovative painting methods.

The Museum Confidential exhibition at Philbrook Museum of Art, which closes May 6th, has done some remarkable things. It has allowed visitors to view an unprecedented number of never-before-seen works. It has given guests an opportunity to play curator, choosing art pieces they’d like to see displayed in the gallery.
