OlinkaHrdymuralsThe Oklahoma City Foundation for Architecture is working with the Oklahoma City University School of Law to raise the funds necessary to conserve and protect two large Olinka Hrdy murals located in the historic Central High School building in downtown Oklahoma City.

Hrdy is seen as Oklahoma's first modern artist,and has connections to Bruce Goff and Alfonso Iannelli (Olinka Hrdy painted murals for Bruce Goff's Riverside Studio in Tulsa). Not many of Olinka's murals survive, and these particular murals are in need of immediate appraisal, repair, and protection.

The initial estimate for the restoration is $50,000. Following restoration the murals will be open for public viewing along with a rotating collection in the building's art gallery.

The Oklahoma City Foundation for Architecture is accepting donations to aid Oklahoma City University in restoring and preserving this irreplaceable part of Oklahoma history. All donations are tax-deductible and can be made online at the foundation's website here. Please help save these rare works of Modernism!
