Airport Art and Culture
(Photo Above) Flying Colors, located on the departures roadway at TUL, was painted in
June 2007 by Tulsa area high school students. The mural was created by Roseanne Bell
and funded by Simon A. Levit, M.D. and George Singer.
In early 2006, a group of citizens representing the local arts community joined together with airport staff to form a Cultural Advisory Group (CAG). The CAG has since developed a strategic plan for incorporating art and cultural exhibits in areas throughout the terminal to showcase local artists, galleries and museums. Today, airport visitors can view pieces from Gilcrease Museum’s historic Native American collection, see first hand pieces of Frank Lloyd Wright furniture on display at Price Tower Arts Center’s exhibit and enjoy a 160 foot long mural.
Future plans include the incorporation of permanent and rotating exhibit space throughout the airport terminal.
