Bialac collection

In March 2010, OU President David Boren announced the gift of more than 4,000 works from Bialac's private collection. The collection, worth several million dollars, represents indigenous cultures across North America, especially the Pueblos of the Southwest, the Navajo and tribes of the Northern and Southern Plains and the Southeast.

The exhibit of selected works from the Bialac collection opened Sept. 27 and is on display through Dec. 30.

The Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art is located in the OU Arts District on the corner of Elm Avenue and Boyd Street, at 555 Elm Ave., on the OU campus.

Admission to the museum is free for OU students with a current student ID, military veterans, museum association members and children ages 5 and under. For others, it is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for children 6 to 17 years of age, and $2 for OU faculty/staff.

The museum is closed on Mondays and admission is complimentary on Tuesdays. For information, go online to or call 325-4938.
