On this edition of ST, we welcome two members of the staff at the Tulsa Historical Society and Museum: Michelle Place is the Executive Director, and Ian D. Swart is the Archivist and Curator of Collections. Both are with us to talk about a recently created app from the Tulsa Historical Society, which is based on what's far and away the most-asked-about historical event at the THS: the Tulsa Race Riot.
On this edition of StudioTulsa, we speak with Steve Liggett, artistic director of the nonprofit Living Arts of Tulsa (located downtown at 307 East Brady). Liggett is also the curator of "Chandelier & Other Luminous Objects," which opened in early August and will remain on exhibit at the Living Arts gallery through September 25th -- and which Liggett tells us all about on today's program.
[Aired on Thursday, February 23rd.] On today's show, we learn about the 19th Annual New Genre Festival, which is being presented by Living Arts of Tulsa at various venues in downtown Tulsa through March 3rd. First, we hear from Steve Liggett, the Artistic Director of Living Arts, who describes several of the outstanding events that've yet to occur at NG19. Then, we hear from the Chicago-based performance artist Erica Mott, who will perform a work called "Revised and Revisited" as part of the NG festival on Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th at 8pm.
