A Luthier’s Tale: The Craft of Stringed Instruments
108 E Reconciliation Way
Tulsa, OK 74103 July 2, 2021 - September 19, 2021
Guest curator Benjamin Liggett brings together local and regional makers in an exhibition dedicated to the art, craft, and design of stringed instruments. Following his training at the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery in Phoenix, AZ, Liggett became a full-time luthier at Bishline Banjos. Liggett brings his passion for creating instruments to this exhibition, which is a survey of stringed instruments ranging from the classical violin family to popular instruments such as the guitar and banjo. These instruments are from the studios of a variety of luthiers that represent the culture and craftsmanship of our region. With a documentary of the making process, a wide range of educational programs, and a multitude of performances, this show shines a light on this incredible craft.
This exhibition is sponsored by Oklahoma Humanities, the Kinder Morgan Foundation, the Flint Family Foundation, and Burt Holmes.
