TFA’s Second Saturday is a standing monthly architecture tour in downtown Tulsa that teaches Tulsans and visitors about our many historic and architecturally significant buildings. “Deco In December” is a special edition of our Second Saturday tour, which showcases unique Art Deco buildings throughout the long lifespan of the style, from Zig Zag to Streamline and even Moderne. Participants will see and learn about landmarks such as the Tulsa Club and the Oklahoma Natural Gas building, constructed during a period of great growth and optimism in our city.
