Cochran said, “we hope to have many more collaborations in the future, after all, we are neighbors that support riverfront development.”

Cochran said, “Festivities will be from 6:00-10:00 p.m. on the grounds of the Tulsa Spotlight Theatre.  There is no admission charge to the tent.  Indoor activities are for members and volunteers only.”

BAD - Poster 1

Come celebrate the 100th First Friday Art Crawl!

Let jazz and melodrama ring in the 100th Art Crawl on Friday, October 2nd from 6:00-9:00 pm on Guthrie Green. The music will be highlighted by the “TulsaJazz.Com Swing Band,” Vintage Swing Movement dancers, and performers from the Tulsa Spotlight Theatre.

Vocalists for the band will include Cynthia Simmons, Sara Maud, Larry Cochran and Branjae Jackson! Whether you’ve been to all 99 previous or this one will be your first, Friday’s 100th Art Crawl has all the makings of being the best yet! This is something that you won’t want to miss!

What is the Art crawl you may ask? Well…

The First Friday Art Crawl was established in 2007. This year-round monthly event features all of the galleries, studios and museums as well as the part-time galleries in various shops opening their doors to show art. The Art Crawl is held on the first Friday of the month and open from 6–9 pm.

In line with its original purpose, local artists are given an opportunity to display and sell their work. This event has grown from 50–100 people visiting 4–6 venues to an event that has drawn over 3,000 people and continues to attract new people to Downtown Tulsa. Besides the mini-galleries being open, the established museums and galleries offer free admission and many shops stay open late. During any given Art Crawl, visitors can expect visual art, performances and maybe a few fireworks! Each venue offers something different and creative, a true hallmark of the Brady Arts District.

First Friday is a perfect date night starting with a cocktail, coffee or early dinner on one of the many patios. It can also be a leisurely browse of the art and a great late dinner or nightcap at the District’s unique restaurants or clubs. Families can find many options from kid-friendly gallery shows to live music in the park. For those who like to linger even later, stay for one of the clubs, bars or coffee shops – many of which offer live entertainment.
