TCC to add abstract art pieces to its downtown campus
The Center for Creativity will soon stretch its creative vibes outside its four walls with the addition of three pieces of existing art and one commissioned piece of art.
Tulsa Community College’s Board of Regents approved purchasing art from the estate of Dr. Simon “Si” Levit in its June board meeting. The College purchased “Spirit Las Mesas” and “Broken Earth” by artist Jesus Moroles with plans to have Moroles create and complete a commissioned piece as well. The board also approved purchasing “Heart and Soul” by artist Candyce Garrett.
Plans are currently in development to transfer the pieces from Levit’s Tulsa home to the Center for Creativity on TCC’s Metro Campus, where they will be on display for downtown visitors to enjoy.
Levit, who died in 2012, was a Tulsa cardiologist who was dedicated to supporting the arts in Tulsa. He served on the Tulsa Arts Commission as well as the boards of many other arts organizations. He had an extensive art collection, of which the family has chosen to sell select pieces.
