Tulsa Art Alley invites artists to apply to create works of public art in Tulsa Art Alley, located between 5th and 6th Street and Boston Ave. and Main St. in downtown Tulsa by completing the form below. This request for artist qualifications is the first step of the process to select artists for the Tulsa Art Alley project.
The Tulsa Art Alley Project will transform the alley in downtown Tulsa between 5th and 6th Street and Boston Avenue and Main Street. In cooperation with the City of Tulsa, local businesses, property owners and volunteers, we will clean up the alley, add artwork, clean up trash, consolidate dumpsters, and add amenities, such as lighting and plants.
Artists or artist teams residing in the United States are eligible to apply.
