Arts & Culture

The Tulsa Planning Office supports the Arts Commission to facilitate the processes that help make and market Tulsa as a place of artistic and cultural tradition and innovation. As an interface between Tulsa’s artistic community and municipal resources, we assist in the approval of beautification projects, the maintenance and marketing of public art, and the long-term cultivation of Tulsa’s cultural resources.

The Tulsa Arts Commission

The Arts Commission is charged with assisting the City in matters concerning public artwork, giving guidance in purchases and maintenance of existing artwork, providing a source of respected opinions and advice concerning public matters having aesthetic implications, reviewing public signage issues (including neighborhood signs), stimulating superior aesthetic quality in all phases of physical development within the community and assisting in the procurement of additional works of public art.

Arts Commission meetings take place at 4PM on the second Tuesday of every month, unless otherwise noted.

Meetings are held in City Hall, in the 10th Floor North Conference Room
