Tulsa Town Hall, Chamber Music Tulsa, Theatre Tulsa, American Theatre Company, Theatre Pops, Playhouse Tulsa, Theatre North, and the PAC Trust also fill the PAC calendar.
Numerous headliners such as Michael Bublé, Kelly Clarkson, Steve Martin and Anthony Bourdain have appeared at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. The complex was built with a combination of public and private funds and opened in 1977. The building is home to a permanent collection of 76 works of art.
One of the country’s best facilities for the preservation and study of American art and history. The museum houses the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of art and artifacts of the American West, including an unparalleled collection of Native American art and material.
Beyond the extensive Gilcrease collection and exhibits are its beautiful gardens. Using the Gilcrease collections as a guide, themed gardens have been developed on 23 of the museum’s 460 acres. The Pre-Columbian, Pioneer, Colonial, Victorian and Rock gardens enhance the museum’s collections by reflecting gardening styles and techniques from the American West. Gilcrease is the only known art museum to have these educational and inspirational gardens on one site.
Special care of the grounds began with the museum’s founder, Thomas Gilcrease, who encouraged the growth of native plants, and introduced numerous specimens including the Southern magnolia. Today, The University of Tulsa maintains these magnificent grounds as part of its agreement with the City of Tulsa to manage the museum’s operations.
Nestled in the Osage Hills, the historic theme gardens are a wonderful component of the total experience of visiting Gilcrease Museum.
About the Gardens
Guests are invited to take a walking tour of the gardens. The essence of the garden design continues to be Italianate, complementing Villa Philbrook with outdoor spaces for viewing nature. The south garden boasts a sensory garden complete with meditative niches, created from plant materials and wrought iron featuring similar arch designs found in Villa Philbrook.
Visitors can observe many newly planted native Oklahoma plants, a variety of pathways, bridges, a sculpture walk, and a refurbished creek. Ease of access is achieved with all trails connecting and ADA accessibility available throughout the gardens.
The formal gardens to the east that descend to the tempietto were part of the original design and construction, while the gardens extending to the summerhouse at the south of the property were conceived later and completed in 2004.
The Gathering Place
When the philanthropist George B. Kaiser spearheaded the creation of this $465 million green space on Tulsa’s waterfront, he hoped to help unite the city, which has struggled with inequality. The 66-acre park, which is open to the public for free, includes playgrounds, gardens, a skate park, a BMX track, a concert venue and a number of restaurants. It also hosts a variety of public programming, from Zumba classes to family nature walks, furnished by a $100 million endowment. Designers also prioritized accessibility: the park is built to be ADA-compliant, and there are desensitization areas for individuals on the autism spectrum. —Wilder Davies
