After Party Only Experience 9:00 PM - Midnight

Join the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa for an innovative evening
as we cultivate the arts together.

 
 
 
 

We invite you to CREATE.

CREATE will take place at the Hardesty Arts Center in the Brady Arts District of downtown Tulsa. The evening will begin at 6:00pm with cocktails and artful hors d’oeuvres in the Jack + Ann Graves Garden for the Arts. Next, a designer dinner featuring cuisine by local chef Justin Thompson will be served in the main gallery, surrounded by artworks created by Angela Piehl, Amy Rockett-Todd, and Douglas Shaw Elder. Following dinner, guests will enjoy creative dessert and drinks in a rooftop after-party on the third floor terrace. There will be live art experiences and surprise entertainment throughout the night.

The attire for CREATE is creative black tie.
