Airport Art and Culture
(Photo Above) Tulsa Our Home, located on the departures roadway at TUL, was painted in October 2013 by girls and art teachers from the Tulsa Girls Art School and Booker T. Washington High School. The mural was designed by Matt Moffit of the Tulsa Girls Art School.
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.
