University of Oklahoma: Fine Arts

Vintage Postcard: University of Okahoma

This building was completed in 1918. It was later named Holmberg Hall and then rechristened as the Donald W. Reynolds Performing Arts Center. The University of Oklahoma says this about the building:
Reynolds Performing Arts Center was created through an $18 million project that renovated and restored OU’s historic Holmberg Hall and added a new stage house and a 20000-square-foot facility for OU’s School of Dance. The project was made possible with a $12.2 million grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation of Las Vegas. Holmberg Hall which features a beautifully restored 685-seat performance hall was built in 1918 and named for Fredrik Holmberg the University’s first Fine Arts Dean. Other special features of the building include three historic murals in the performance hall lobby by acclaimed muralist Mike Larsen; three more Mike Larsen murals in the School of Dance lobby titled Movement in Violet Entranced (honoring School of Dance Founders Miguel Terekhov and Yvonne Chouteau) and Waiting in the Wings.
