HUNDRED MONKEY RANCH & STUDIO
Nestled on 40 acres in the rolling ranch land of the Osage Nation, the Hundred Monkey Ranch & Studio occupies an historic dairy farm built in the early 20th century. The pristine beauty and free roaming buffalo of the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve are a short drive to the northwest, while a few miles to the northeast is Frank Phillips' spectacular Woolaroc Ranch, now maintained as a public museum.
The seven original buildings comprising the studio compound are clad in fanciful native stonework and include a hay barn, dairy barn, loafing shed, garage, smokehouse/lookout tower, and main farm house. Artist Kreg Kallenberger began restoration of these derelict buildings in 1995, stripping them to their bare stone skeletons before rebuilding them. In 1999 he relocated his studio to the renovated dairy barn. Today the compound houses an extensive glass operation and woodworking facilities, as well as guest cottages and live-work space for visiting artists and special workshop activities.
