The rich oil history of Indian territory on the Great Plains shaped the people and landscape. The first commercial oil well was drilled outside Ramona, Okla., before the territory became a state. The new Cherokee Casino Ramona retells this story from the inside out, creating a lively and fun atmosphere for visitors. The bright red curved exterior represents the fluidity of oil, seeking to reflect the historic importance of oil drilling in the area.
The eye-catching façade is a tribute to this rich oil history. The vibrant exterior contrasts the landscape and is visible from the nearby highway, attracting visitors. The casino uses 20,000 sf of metal panels.
Valspar's Fluropon 70% PVDF coating system was utilized for the panels in Colonial Red, Copper Penny, Slate Gray, and custom Bright Red. The colors were selected with an eye toward the oil boom period and its historical significance for the Cherokee Nation.
Multiple colors on the curved exterior give the building texture and contribute to a festive appearance. Fluropon was selected for its performance qualities. With excellent color retention and resistance to ultraviolet rays, the entertainment center will continue to attract visitors with its fun appearance for many years to come.
