Hoover Community Mural
The Hoover Neighborhood Association is creating the largest mural in Tulsa. Spanning alongside 31st street from Darlington Avenue to Yale Avenue (that’s 750 feet long!), our mural will represent the best of our square mile in Tulsa and will breathe life back into the 31st street corridor.
Not only are we looking to beautify and improve an overlooked corridor in Tulsa, but also we’re showcasing our neighborhood’s 1950s and 1960s architecture and educating the public about Hoover’s rich history in Tulsa.
Our mural showcases the post-war, modern features of the many ranch and split-level houses in the neighborhood, including breeze block patterns and plants found throughout the neighborhood. A reference to the longtime geographical center of Tulsa, 26th and Joplin, connects Hoover’s history with Tulsa’s future, represented by the city flag. Throughout the mural, we incorporated several nods to Hoover culture, including a pair of swords to represent the Hoover Sword Army (our active neighborhood watch volunteers), a Hoover Elementary School husky, and the Lortondale logo to represent the atomic style ranches in the neighborhood.
We need help to make the mural happen, though! We're currently fundraising with a $15,000 goal to complete the mural. We are accepting any size donation, and have corporate sponsorships available as well. Reach out to us below for more information on donations or becoming a sponsor.
