TULSA - A mural spanning 35 feet was unveiled Wednesday afternoon in the heart of the Pearl District in front of Tulsa city councilors, Pearl District Association representatives and members of the community.
Painted by artist and Iraq War veteran Josh Butts, The Pearl Mural stands 25 feet tall in front of the Tulsa Beef and Provision Building and depicts scenes from the neighborhood's past, present and future.
The mural came about after a Tulsa Beautiful Foundation grant, donations from the Meeks Group and RDS Manufacturing and Pearl District Association board and volunteer work.
