On this edition of StudioTulsa, we learn about a show on view at the Philbrook Museum of Art through April 5th: "Whistler and the British Etching Revival." This small but engaging exhibition, culled from Philbrook's permanent collection, displays prints by James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) and Francis Seymour Haden (1818-1910) -- who was Whistler's brother-in-law -- as well as similar works by several artists who came after these two.
One of the two Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity members who was expelled from the University of Oklahoma for participating in a racist chant apologized on Wednesday. Levi Pettit spoke with black politicians, pastors and community leaders for about two hours and later addressed the press at the Fairview Missionary Baptist Church in northeast Oklahoma City, but Pettit would not reveal how he learned the infamous chant.
TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Severe storms were bearing down on the Tulsa area, ending a quiet start to the nation's tornado season.
Tornado warnings were issued and sirens blared for a time Wednesday night as a pair of storms moved across the area.
After the first storm passed, amateur radio operators reported damage in the Sand Springs community west of the city. That is where the fatality took place. A second storm passed through the city a half-hour later, prompting another tornado warning.
Sand Springs and Tulsa Schools are closed today because of power outages.
