Living Arts of Tulsa's Chandelier and Route 66 exhibits on display through April 25

TULSA - Living Arts of Tulsa (livingarts.org) has two unique exhibits for locals this month.

The first, " Chandelier – An Exhibit of Illuminated Objects ," is a compilation of artwork from artists around the area. Thirty-two chandeliers are on display from Oklahoma creators. They were challenged to create their masterpieces out of any material.

Steve Liggett director of Living Arts Museum says the idea came to him in a dream.

The chandeliers are made out of a number of objects ranging from wood to copper to skulls to paint cans to plastic spoons.

Each chandelier is programmable and interactive.

The exhibit runs through April 25.

Also on display is an interactive exhibit that takes you along Route 66, without ever leaving Tulsa.

Natalie Slater, a University of Tulsa student, traveled from Chicago to Los Angeles taking pictures of well-known landmarks along the way to create " The Mother Road Revisted: Route 66 Then and Now ." (www.motherroadrevisited.com)

Slater then combined the modern-day photo with one from the 1950s, capturing how the images have changed from then and now.

The artwork also has a QR code, which will show the viewer what the image looked like 40 years ago. The exhibit has several iconic images from Tulsa.

The artwork is on display through April 25.

Living Arts of Tulsa is closed Sunday and Monday, open from 1-5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and 1-9 p.m. on Thursdays.
