Oklahoma Tour: Art Camp, Route 66 World's Largest Things, and the last showing of "Domesticated"


June 12 - 29, 2003 at Living Arts of Tulsa

Oklahoma? OK!

I spent two an a half weeks in the OK state, taking care of one of my older installation shows "Domesticated: Deconstructing the American Dream" and teaching at an art camp through Living Arts of Tulsa. Since I knew I’d be toodling around downtown Tulsa, I brought the bus along, and met a lot of great people, ending up with an article or two to boot in the Tulsa World.

The Art Camp went well, with some really amazing kids, ranging from 5th through 10th graders. They worked for two weeks in video, performance, assemblage sculpture, and new music, culminating in a multimedia presentation of their work on the last day of camp.

The installation "Domesticated" ran concurrently, in its final showing ever. As a piece of installation art, it came to an official end in a farm auction, with all the parts and pieces being sold to the highest bidder.


World's Largest Things, OK!

Taking Route 66 down to Tulsa, you run into the World’s Largest   Totem Pole , a grassroots site made by Ed Galloway.

Then, as seen on TV, the   Blue Whale in Catoosa.

Tulsa itself boasts the World’s Largest Golden Driller, right next to Bells Amusement Park – one of the few last family-run amusements parks left.

Just by chance, while in Okmulgee checking out a 1920s Opera House (with signatures in the catacombs of the old vaudeville performers), now an active theater called the Orpheum, I found the home of the World’s Largest Pecan Pie, baked annually at the annual Pecan Festival. Unfortunately, that took place just 2 weeks before I got there.

Things I didn’t see – World’s Largest Tube of Caulk, Oklahoma City, World’s Largest Praying Hands, Oral Roberts University, Tulsa, World’s Largest Peanut, Durant (seen it before, not that spectacular)

And, got lots of tips for new World’s Largest Things.
