"All Tulsa Public Schools have experienced funding reductions. The various Arts programs tend to be some of the first affected. This includes both Performing and Visual Arts. In the Tulsa Arts District, we realize the daily influence The Arts have had on our successes. We believe in the power of The Arts to lift a person’s spirit and give them a meaning and drive in their life. For many of our individual business owners, the artistic opportunities provided them in their early years supplied the inspiration for a lifetime of personal and career satisfaction.” Bob Fleischman, President of the Tulsa Arts District Business.
