Mod of the Moment

1 Mar

moderntulsa is excited to announce the latest in its Mod of the Moment series. Join us Sunday March, 6th from 4 – 6 pm for drinks, refreshments, music and modern design at the 1958 Robert Buchner designed Scherbatskoy residence located at 1220 East 21st place.

The house, which was featured in the November 1961 issue of House + Home magazine, is located in Mapleridge and is a conglomeration of old and new. The existing house is an addition/rebuild after a fire destroyed a significant portion of the original house. Many people have seen the house from the exterior, now is your chance to see it from the inside.

Modern Tulsa’s Evening of American Streamlined Design

25 Jan

American Streamlined Design

Join moderntulsa for an evening of American Streamlined Design. Modern Tulsa and the Philbrook Museum of Art have joined forces again to offer you the chance to view the new American Streamlined Design; The World of Tomorrow exhibition free of charge February 15th from 6 – 8pm.

The twentieth century reveled in machines and the speed they made possible. Sleek aerodynamic styling embodied a new and modern beauty. From the late 1920…s to the 1950s, streamlining became the popular American design idiom for objects ranging from toy scooters to typewriters. This exhibition features more than 180 objects by such designers as Raymond Loewy, Henry Dreyfuss, Norman Bel Geddes and Walter Dorwin Teague.

Spend the evening with us as we celebrate the beauty of streamlined design, and be eligible for 15% discounts on yearly memberships for both Philbrook and Modern Tulsa.

No cost to attend, but an RSVP is required. Refreshments will be available.
You can also RSVP by leaving a comment below.

Hope to see you there!
