South Gallery: Wandering Spirit: African Wax Prints

February 2 – March 30, 2024

This vivid exhibition documents the history and development of the handmade designs and patterns on textiles that originated in Indonesia and were copied and industrialized by Europeans and exported to Africa. Wandering Spirit is curated by Dr. Gifty Benson and organized by ExhibitsUSA/Mid-America Arts Alliance of Kansas City, Missouri. It traces the developmental pathway of African wax prints and tells how these fabrics reflect the stories, cultures and personalities of the people who wear them.

North Gallery: OK, Play!

January 5 – March 30, 2024

The exhibit features historical documents, photographs, sports equipment, and memorabilia from many familiar sports teams and organizations, including Tulsa Oilers hockey and baseball, the Tulsa Drillers, Chili Bowl Nationals racing, FC Tulsa, the TU Golden Hurricane, the WNBA Shock, the Roughneck Roller Derby, and more!
