Our very own Kristina Rosenthal showing Peoria Avenue #7
Done in 2011, Peoria Avenue #7 is a 60’ x 72’ graphite and paper collage showing a contemporary scene from Tulsa’s Peoria Avenue. This recently purchased piece is part of a series titled “Tulsa Streets” and it is coming off a five-week exhibition at the University of Texas at Tyler Meadows Gallery. Peoria Avenue #7 will be on permanent display on the north-facing wall of McFarlin’s Library’s lobby, near the circulation desk.
The University of Tulsa’s Department of Special Collections and University Archives cordially invites our students, faculty, patrons, and the general public to come to McFarlin Library and take a look at this outstanding work of art.
