Block Party is the Art Directors Club of Tulsa’s (ADCT) annual fundraiser. Anyone can participate. We provide you with a 3.5″ wooden block, and you create something awesome from it. You can do whatever you want to it: Paint it. Sculpt it. Carve it. Photograph it. Whatever! You can even make your own block out of something else. Keep in mind we want to sell this block for big, big money so do something amazingly, crazy fantastic! Then ADCT gathers all the blocks and has a one night exhibition and silent auction where the community bids on the block. A portion of the proceeds go towards supporting student artists.

The party will be held at Living Arts Gallery (307 East Brady Street) November 20, 6-9 pm where we will silently auction off artist’s blocks. There will be a $4 cover charge (artists donating a block to be auctioned will get in free). Awards will be given to 1st, 2nd & 3rd place blocks and also for the highest bidding block. Hors D’oeuvres and cash bar will be available.

Tulsa Success Stories in the Design World

This month, ADCT invites you to get inspired by the success stories of five local artists. Unfortunately our original speaker, Paul Taggert, had an urgent commitment with a client. He sends his apologies. So while he’s caught up in a remote part of Alaska, we’ll take a look at the impressive talents in our own backyard. Join us in welcoming guests Jeremy Charles, Darshan Phillips, May Yang, Tina Fincher, and Matt Leach as they show off the heart of Tulsa talent. Be a part of the panel’s open discussion and participate in a Q&A.

A Recap of our Event with Jay Ryan

So we had Jay Ryan come to Tulsa and spend some time with us last month. Before he spoke at Living Arts Gallery, we had lunch, had some laughs, and discussed the act destroying other people’s cars on the streets of Chicago if they so happened to steal a parking spot that someone else dug out of the snow. Apparently its a thing. Then we went to Dwelling Spaces (where Jay’s work is still on display until April 14) and Jay met with fans and signed autographs on other bits of The Bird Machine memorabilia.

We were so fortunate to hear him speak about his career as a screen-printer and poster maker. He is basically the current Godfather of rock poster printing and design. His knowledge was and is invaluable. He spoke about his early influences such as Joseph Cornell and how he stalked his future wife while pursuing his undergraduate degree. He told us where baby bicycles come from and how he incorporated screen-printing to deal with the buffalo infestation that was destroying the roof of his garage.

Hopefully, we will have Jay back to Tulsa, but for the time being, if you missed the event, you will have to live without knowing the deepest secrets about life that he shared only with folks that attended the event.

Check his work and what the Bird Machine is all about here, and don’t miss out on another bad ass event we have tonight, March 20, with Ryan Sievert of IDEO in Chicago. We promise it will be worth your while.
