Art in the Square – Utica Square, Tulsa, October 3, 2009
Art in the Square occurs every October. Local artists showcase their works along Utica Square’s sidewalks and we have a chance to meet our artists and purchase their wares. In the beautiful and crisp Oklahoma fall, this is becoming an annual tradition you won’t want to miss!
Beautiful Utica Square is the backdrop for over 90 local artists as they showcase their work. As you stroll down the tree-lined brick sidewalks, you can admire the different mediums of art ranging from watercolors, stained glass, pottery, sculpture, and woodturning. And if you see something that inspires you, stop and chat with the artist. Each artist is on hand to answer any questions you may have.
This free event celebrates art and the art of shopping.
Art in the Square, Saturday, October 3, 2009,
10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Utica Square – Tulsa’s finer midtown Shopping Centre – The many Tulsa midtown neighborhoods that I love – Terwilleger Heights, Maple Ridge, Swan Lake, Florence Park – all share a unique place to shop: Utica Square.
Once considered the “outskirts of town,” Utica Square is an anchor of midtown Tulsa.
Built in the 1950s, Utica Square more resembles a village shopping area than an obtrusive shopping mall. Trees and benches are scattered throughout and most restaurants offer sidewalk dining.
Referred to as “the Square” by locals, its charm and beauty are evidenced by the many clocks and the garden’s bronze fountain and statue. With over sixty shops, Utica Square truly provides Tulsa midtown neighbors one-stop shopping.
But, it’s not just the great sixty shops that will keep you coming back to “the Square” – you’ll become a frequent visitor once you are smitten by its charm and home-town atmosphere.
And, “Art in the Square” is one of the many free attractions offered at the Square. See you there shortly after breakfast at The Wild Fork!
