The Hearst Collection

A lot of people think of me as a “theater person” or a “music person.” And those people are probably confused when I spend a lot of my time running off in other directions.

What really excites me is creating experiences. That’s part of why I like the name Seven Lively Arts—because it doesn’t pin itself down to one particular discipline.

For example: The Hearst Collection

The name may sound like a fine art gallery, but it’s actually more like your most thrilling, Mission Impossible dreams. The “gallery” is protected by a network of laser security sensors, and it is your job, as a world-class art thief, to navigate your way through the maze without triggering the alarms.

What a cool experience, right? To get to play out in the real world the kind of adventure we only see in the movies?

What if we brought The Hearst Collection to Bartlesville? Do you know people who would pay to come have a fun experience like this?
