Like other American cities, Tulsa enjoyed economic growth and prosperity in the 1920s. Our city was the center of the oil and gas industry, and some of Tulsa’s finest buildings and the nation’s finest art deco buildings were constructed. It was also a period marked by interracial tension, and in 1921, one of the most violent race riots in American history occurred in Tulsa. In conjunction with this year’s One Book, One Tulsa program featuring F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, a story that captures a 1920s American world of prosperity and tragedy, Tulsa City-County Library invites the community to an exhibit of 1920s Tulsa area photographs in the DIY Gallery at AHHA.
Historic Tulsa postcards are available in the AHHA gift shop. Proceeds will support the Central Library renovation.
Don't forget that this week's First Friday Art Crawl has been rescheduled for July 11th due to Independence Day.
