“Blue Lift 1999” was designed by Tulsa artist Linda Allen. Created on the north wall adjacent to the ground-level, south elevator, the mosaic is made up of tesserea, a blue, Italian glass tile. Allen received her undergraduate and graduate degrees in art from the University of Tulsa, and she began her career in ceramics and clay in 1981. Allen, who was assisted by her daughter-in-law, Katheryn Allen, also created mosaics for the Mayo Demonstration School, Woodland Hills Mall, Tulsa Community College – West Campus, Utica Plaza Building, the Tulsa Zoo, and the Littlefield Office Building.
