Our World – Boston Avenue Church

Boston Avenue Church

Boston Avenue Church is a Methodist Church in Tulsa designed in the art deco style by Bruce Goff. It is one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen and I’ve posted photographs of it several times. I took this picture from a window where I work. I cropped out the bottom a little because of some ugly rooftops that intruded in the photo.

We used to be members when we first moved to town and I can tell you that the interior of the building is as spectacular as the exterior. They used to have guided tours of the building every Sunday after the last service.

In a city known for its art deco treasures Boston Avenue Church is the masterpiece. Check it out if you ever make it to town. Tell them Yogi sent you.

    I attended a Bruce Goff lecture while I was a student at OU. It must have been around 1976 or 77. He was a very interesting architect and contemporary of Buckminster Fuller and Frank Lloyd Wright. Goff was actually the Dean of Architecture at OU in the early 60’s. You are fortunate to have a view of Boston Ave. that few others get to enjoy. Thanks for sharing a great image of Goff’s masterwork.

    I love when you post pictures of this church. I love the wings-wide-open feel of Art Deco architecture.

    Here in the Northeast, Methodists in the 50s and 60s had all kinds of spiritual adventures with architecture where they could afford to forgo the modesty and frugality of clapboard rectangles that are the hallmark of New England Protestantism. The church I grew up in invited me to believe big. I love the spirit of the building you photgraphed.
