ORCHESTRA Music Abstract Earrings made in the USA
In 1928, Tulsa architect Bruce Goff asked Olinka Hrdy, a recent graduate of the University of Oklahoma, to create a mural cycle for a music studio he had designed for Patti Shriner Adams. Located on Riverside Drive in Tulsa, the studio served as Shriner's recital hall and home. Hrdy designed a cycle of nine murals based on her abstract interpretation of different styles of music. Although the murals no longer exist, Hrdy's precise studies for the murals survive. She used the language of Art Deco, a design style popular in Tulsa at the time, as a basis for her abstract imagery. The forms and colors are meant to convey the tones, rhythms, and themes of the music. These earrings are based on Hrdy's design for the Riverside mural Orchestra Music.
