Lilly Architects designs featured in Conde Nast Traveler Guide
TULSA, OK- Located at the confluence of the Cherokee, Muscogee, and Osage tribal nations, Tulsa was once known as the oil capital of the world. Now, it offers a wonderful mix of both Native American and African American culture and history, plus a blend of Midwestern and Southern charm. Oklahoma’s second-largest city, its former opulence is evident in Art Deco architecture prevalent throughout the downtown area. Also a big music town, with everything from large arenas to small bars hosting regular live music shows, Tulsa saw its Bob Dylan Center open this May in the Tulsa Arts District. The venue showcases thousands of items owned by Dylan (who reportedly appreciates the city for its strong Native American presence), over seven decades—a move that the museum hopes “will help put Tulsa on the map,” according to center director Steven Jenkins.
The Bob Dylan Center, The Church Studio and the Tulsa Club Hotel are all Lilly Architects projects featured in this article.
