A TALE OF THREE BUILDINGS… 

TFA’s LIVE/Virtual Tours are back! This time, we’re going to Dive into Deco and compare different buildings with similar themes. Each week will focus on a new pair of buildings. Not so Utility Art Deco: High Style Headquarters is the third in a 4-week series of Art Deco LIVE/Virtual tours from Tulsa Foundation for Architecture.  

THIS TOUR: 

TFA Guides Ellen Stanley and Tim Bracken will take us on an in-depth tour of THREE utility headquarter buildings: South Western Bell Main Dial, Public Service of Oklahoma and Oklahoma Natural Gas.  Marty Newman will add his knowledge, opinions, and funny stories along the way.  

Your Tour Guides will be LIVE on the street. As a participant, you can ask questions and interact with the host as you explore Tulsa from the comfort of your sofa. Put your feet up, and come on a walking tour with us. 

These are VIRTUAL TOURS! We are live at the buildings, but you can watch from wherever you are, on whatever device you want.
