We have been working on a bunch of fun projects recently! Check out the updates below!
New display cases house the museum's growing collection

Our display case project is complete! These display cases were graciously donated by the Tulsa Questers. Luke Hembree custom built the cases and they were painted by the talented William Franklin. Check out some of the Art Deco books below that are on view in the new display cases!

New backdrops completed for the Museum Store exhibit windows
The new backdrops that flank the entrance to the Museum Store were completed by Luke Hembree. The inspiration was to make these exhibit windows look like an old-fashioned department store display from the Art Deco era. On view are three-dimensional models created after Erte's two-dimensional fashion designs. Erte's designs were extremely daring for the time. Also, on view are Art Deco clocks from the Hammond Clock Company, pictured is the Gregory and the Junior clock.

Fire Station No. 13 & Westinghouse Warehouse

The former Fire Station No. 13 was designed by architect Albert Joseph Love and it was completed in 1931. Another building very similar to the fire station is the former Westinghouse Warehouse (now Living Art of Tulsa). The architect on this building is unknown, but the triangular details on the building are similar. It is possible that the former Westinghouse Warehouse was also deigned by Albert Joseph Love.
