Old Is New

Fri, 03/17/2017 - 9:48am -- apeterson

Blog Teaser

 

On the evening of Thursday, March 2, the Schusterman Library and the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture celebrated the opening of the exhibit “Old is New: #TransformingTulsa with the Oklahoma Historic Tax Credit.” The exhibition tells the story of the Oklahoma Historic Tax Credit by examining the renovation of the Mayo Hotel, a long-standing Tulsa institution that once played host to distinguished guests such as John F. Kennedy, Charles Lindbergh, Marilyn Monroe, Paul McCartney, Mickey Mantle, and many more. By 1981, however, the Mayo was in shambles: a vacant shadow of its former self destined for demolition. With the help of Tax Credit funds, however, the Mayo re-opened its doors in 2009, and is once again admired as one of the most beautiful buildings in downtown Tulsa. By encouraging restoration of long-vacant buildings like the Mayo Hotel, Oklahoma Historic Tax Credits continue to transform Tulsa and shape our local culture.

The “Old is New” opening reception began with drinks (served by celebrity bartender Ted Reeds, AIA, co-founder of TFA!) and hors d'oeuvres to be enjoyed while browsing the exhibit. Attendees observed the exhibit through digital slideshows showcasing photographs of the Mayo Hotel in its original glory days, before and after pictures of the Hotel’s recent transformation, and highlights of celebrities who have stayed at the Mayo over the years. An interactive digital display also allowed attendees to learn about other building transformations in Tulsa made possible thanks to Historic Tax Credits. Artifacts from the Mayo Hotel were on display as well, including vintage postcards, stationery, matchbook covers, and an original elevator indicator light from the building.

   

Erica Argyropoulos, Exhibit Curator and TFA Archivist, kicked off the evening’s opening remarks with a brief introduction of the exhibit before passing the microphone to TFA Executive Director, Amanda DeCort. Ms. DeCort highlighted the incredible economic, cultural, and aesthetic benefits Historic Tax Credits have brought to Tulsa, before introducing guest speakers Joel Slaughter, co-owner of Phillips Slaughter Rose Inc., and John Snyder, owner of Brickhugger, LLC. Mr. Slaughter painted a vivid picture of the destruction and decay he discovered inside the Mayo Hotel during a structural study in 1995, while Mr. Snyder relayed his tale of purchasing the Mayo Hotel for a dollar and the accompanying parking lot for $250,000 in 2001. Together Slaughter and Snyder worked to renovate the Mayo Hotel in order to contribute to the revitalization of downtown Tulsa.

As the evening drew to a close, architects, citizens, and students engaged in lively conversation in the exhibit space, sharing their passion for Tulsa’s ability to transform.

Nir Evron's Projected Claims: A Multimedia Exhibit

Wed, 07/22/2015 - 12:39pm -- eargyrop

Blog Teaser

From June 29 - July 31, the Schusterman Library has featured Perspectives on International Child Welfare, a digital exhibition crafted by OU students in the School of Social Work. The exhibit examines the experiences and insights of students who participated in an exchange program that saw their return from Israel in May. The initiative is in partnership with the Haruv Institute, an organization established by the Schusterman Foundation in 2007, and one of Israel’s leading authorities on child abuse and neglect. The gallery offering highlights the importance of advancing child welfare initiatives in a climate of conflict, also bringing to light issues pertaining to social disparity between children in East and West Jerusalem.

Now, at the Philbrook Downtown, students and faculty can benefit from yet another perspective on the complexities of life in Israel as realized by up-and-coming Israeli artist Nir Evron, in his exhibit, Projected Claims. Evron’s work seeks to explore complex issues of history, culture, politics, religion, identity, and shifting borders through a diverse multimedia offering. Projected Claims—Evron’s first exhibition in the United States—explores Israel’s evolving landscape in a manner that seeks to confront romanticized notions of the Holy Land, as well as the dichotomy presented by the desire for change and the inability to successfully implement it. Included in the exhibition are two projected videos: In Virgin Land, “a mediation on the Israeli landscape and the claims made to the holy land throughout the centuries,” and Oriental Arch, “a study of a hotel in East Jerusalem that operates despite the lack of guests and activity.” Also featured is the world debut of Evron’s Threshold, a collection of doubly exposed black and white photographs that document the construction of a new Palestinian city in the West Bank region. The exhibit is ongoing until October 18, and OU-Tulsa students can visit for free with a valid student ID. Learn more at http://philbrook.org/explore/exhibitions/nir-evron

What is the Tunnel of Oppression? And what is it doing in the library?

The Tunnel of Oppression was originally developed as a grassroots program at Western Illinois University in 1993. The objective of the Tunnel of Oppression was to give participants a way to experience oppression and discrimination in a hands-on way by walking participants through role-plays and interactive scenarios.

In the spirit of this original grassroots program, Human Relations students enrolled in HR 5003-980 Theoretical Foundations in Human Relations developed a series of interactive multimedia presentations that address various forms of oppression, or in contrast, privilege.

This exhibit will be on display in the Schusterman Library's Arts and Information Digital Gallery November 27 through December 7th.

You can use any background, colors, or fonts that you like, and arrange the elements the way you want to.

Remember to stop by the new parking lot just north of the Schusterman Center Library from 2 p.m. until 3 p.m. today to enjoy a free ice cream treat and a tour of the new Schusterman Center library.

Scheduled to open early this summer, the new Schusterman Center Library has 22,000 square-feet, which is more than double the size of the current library. Please note, you must finish your ice cream treat before going on the tour. Library staff will be strictly enforcing that rule. Special thanks for Flintco for providing the ice cream.
