Total Project Budget: $25,000 Budget Description: Total Project Budget includes design, fabrication (if required), delivery, installation, artist fee, travel, Tulsa Artery fee and other direct costs. Project Details: The Otasco “PARK201“ project is part of a mixed-use commercial development. This is a redevelopment Plan to create a regional arts and entertainment destination that builds on the rejuvenated food, shopping, and arts districts throughout downtown Tulsa. In that spirit, the developer has a thoughtfully designed public plaza in mind for a 4,000 square foot space that was a former parking lot, into an outdoor courtyard for dining, small events and gathering space that ties together the commercial, arts and theater elements envisioned in the redevelopment plan.
The vision: This project is to create a defining public art sculpture for the Otasco PARK201 that will be visually captivating both day and night, a reflection of the essence of the Blue Dome District and a signature element of the Otasco Redevelopment Project which simply must be seen by all visitors. The sculpture contemplated will be one component of a multi-faceted design that will also incorporate pavement and outdoor seating and dining, artists courtyard, artful landscaping and a multi-story projection element. Together these art components will build upon the recognition of downtown Tulsa and the Blue Dome District as a rich, vibrant and diverse arts community with both a historical past and an exciting present and future.
