TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) — A temporary public art project was recently unveiled by the Downtown Tulsa Partnership.
"Curbside Haiku" was created in partnership with Magic City Books and local artist May Yang and celebrates Downtown's vibrancy and inclusivity.
Ten entries were selected after a call to the public to submit short poems about Downtown.
The entries are featured on art boards placed near trees and planter beds throughout Downtown.
"Curbside Haiku" is expected to stay up for the next month. A map of locations can be found here.
“Downtown is the heart of our great city, and I am humbled to be selected to shape the efforts toward innovative mobility, diverse development, and inclusive economic opportunity that can make our Downtown thrive,” said the Director of Planning and Vitality Emily Scott. “I have witnessed the great work of Downtown Tulsa Partnership as a former Downtown resident and long-term Downtown employee, and I look forward to supporting the continued efforts of DTP to make our Downtown neighborhood a symbol of opportunity that is welcoming and enjoyed by all Tulsans and visitors alike.”
