February—it’s the shortest month of the year, but there’s definitely no shortage of exciting things happening here in Tulsa. When thinking of ideas for our Arts + Makers issue, we were inspired by the talented local creatives who beautify our community with their work. Whether it’s local theater performances, the Tulsa area arts scene or handmade goods from local artisans, we were inspired by the creative culture our city is bursting with. Some of our favorite music-related places around the area include the BOK Center, Brady Theater, Cain’s Ballroom, Jazz Hall of Fame, The Joint and Paradise Cove. Besides the beautiful Art Deco architecture that Tulsa is famous for, we love enjoying everything there is to find at the Philbrook Museum of Art and Gilcrease Museum as well as the Woody Guthrie Center, The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art, Aberson Exhibits and numerous other places that showcase incredible art collections. As you are out and about, be sure to visit the numerous murals and sculptures around town all with their own story of how they came into existence. With our own bustling creative scene—from jewelry makers and potters to musicians and actors—we hope you find inspiration in these pages and come to appreciate our unique perspective here in Tulsa. Consider this issue a small guide to things creative and hit the town to unleash your own creativity! You never know—we may see you around!
