Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve to Host Exhibit and Sale
Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve announced today that they will be hosting “The Best of the Best 2017” Retrospective Exhibit and Sale from October 7, 2017, through December 31, 2017. According to Show Director Dean Zervas and Museum Director Shiloh Thurman, the upcoming show is a result of the great success that Woolaroc enjoyed from their first national show in 2013 featuring The Lewis & Clark, Corps of Discovery. That show was followed by “The Best of the Best 2015,” which featured eight outstanding wildlife artists.
“The reaction from the general public to both shows was overwhelming and is why we immediately set forth to present this show in 2017,” said Zervas.
Founded in 1925 by oilman Frank Phillips, Woolaroc is a 3,700 acre working ranch that has a 50,000 square foot museum with a collection described by Christie’s of New York as “one of the finest collections of southwest art in the world.” Woolaroc also showcases the original Lodge home and a large herd of buffalo, elk, longhorn cattle, Scotch Highland cattle and hundreds of deer. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Washington, D.C., Woolaroc is located 12 miles SW of Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and 45 miles NW of Tulsa, Oklahoma, on State Highway 123.
