5th Annual Tulsa Mardi Gras Masquerade

February 22-23, 2020 | 7 p.m. - 2 a.m.

Isn't time Tulsa had a proper Mardi Gras celebration? Oklahomans for Equality, LockHeart Productions, and the Blue Dome District are hosting the 5th annual Tulsa Mardi Gras Masquerade on Saturday Feb 22nd at 7:00pm. This event is for ages 21 and up. The funds raised by our 2020 masquerade go to support OKEQ. This event WILL sell out. Tickets start at $35, please buy them in advance in order to make sure you can attend. One ticket gets you into two shows! Enjoy a traditional Mardi Gras immersive environment with live Cajun and music at Enso Bar, or get a little crazy and go to a Mardi Gras gone wild celebration in The Unicorn Club. Our Masquerade is a fully immersive experience. From the flavors, sights, and sounds, to party favors, complimentary masks, bead necklaces, and more! Both on stage and among the crowd, our cast and crew of performers and character actors will whisk you away to the bayou with their wild costumes and performances. When you step through our doors you are walking into a proper Mardi Gras celebration. The masquerade is designed to be a philanthropic event that raises funds for local non-profits. Our 2020 goal is to provide OKEQ with a fundraiser that they love without tapping into any resources that can be used for their normal programming. Our long-term goal is to build Mardi Gras up to a level of notoriety that rivals other downtown holidays and festivals in downtown Tulsa.

April 2020

Humanity: the ART of being human.

April 4, 2020

Humanity: the ART of being human. Experience the imbalance and imperfections of our world as they impact Humanity and each soul. This three-woman ballet is an original work set to the emotionally- charged and masterfully played Rite of Spring, by Igor Stravinsky. Dickran Atamian, a world-renowned classical pianist, is hailed to have presented the best arrangement to date of this powerful work. Atamian’s daughter will be the principal performer of RITE, making this work a must-see. Allenato, the all-youth performing arts company of Oklahoma Performing Arts, will present four complete works in one evening, April 4th, 2020: RITE, Paulie: the Performer, Trial by Jury and For ART. Oklahoma Performing Arts is a place where every individual is given the opportunity to develop and empower his or her character through classical arts training and community service programs and presentations. Students who study art are 4 times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and 3 times more likely to be awarded for school attendance. This is more than just a Dance program. OPA provides the platform for students to mentor each other, build leadership skills and learn how to thrive in real life challenges. 98% of our students who complete the full program go on to college and 98% of those attending college graduate. One student shared, “giving a speech for my student council elections was easy breezy because I have had the opportunity to speak in front of large groups during my time at OPA. I was calm and cool, unlike many of my friends!” For tickets visit: https://www.tulsapac.com/events/2020/rite The cost is $10.00 per ticket.

2020 Tulsa Chautauqua: 20th Century Visionaries: Catalysts for Change

June 2, 2020 | 12 - 2 p.m.

WORKSHOP: Wright and ‘The Women:’ From his mother, Anna’s insistence she was birthing a great architect, to his early marriage to Kitty, to the scandal with ‘Mamah’ and her tragic murder, and to a final partnership with Olga, women strongly molded the man, Frank Lloyd Wright. We investigate the ups and downs from scandal to tragedy to peaceful co-existence that influenced his ‘organic architecture’ from encounters with the ‘other-half’ of humanity as documented in novels and histories written about the “Women.”

Tulsa Chautauqua: 20th Century Visionaries: Catalysts for Change

June 2, 2020 | 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.

WORKSHOP: The Sykes-Picot Agreement and Today's Middle East Conflict - In 1916, diplomats from France and England made a secret agreement to divide up the Middle East. Promises had been made to the Arab people that they would be allowed to determine their homelands. But this controversial agreement was put into place instead, creating the countries of Iraq, Jordan, Palestine, Syria and Lebanon. This is one of the causes of strife with the Middle East today. This workshop will explore this agreement and its ramifications today.

OK Art Crawl

June 27, 2020 June 28, 2020 | 5 - 8 p.m.

Discover the art next door! The Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition is organizing the OK Art Crawl, a statewide event in response to the COVID-19 pandemic which has shut down many summer festivals and arts events in Oklahoma. Oklahoma artists are invited to put their work on public display—in their windows, on their driveways, on their porches (or on their friends’ porches, with permission). We will publish the participating artists’ images and addresses on a Google map on our website. From 5 to 8 pm on June 27th and 28th, visitors can drive to the area of their choice to safely view the art on display. All participants are encouraged to follow proper social distancing guidelines as detailed by the CDC including keeping a distance of 6 feet between parties and wearing masks when in shared spaces. Any sales taken during the art crawl must be done through Venmo or online to conduct no-contact sales. OVAC will not be taking any commission on the sales. Visit OKArtCrawl.org to learn more. If you have any questions regarding the OK Art Crawl, please contact Alexa Goetzinger at eat9@eau9eav9eaw9 or 405.879.2400, Ex. 3.
