Our World – New Route 66 Monument in Tulsa


a bonus shadow selfie

Tulsa’s Howard Park right on Route 66 in the city’s gritty industrial west side has a brand spanking new monument consisting of three big sculpted pillars of Indiana Limestone by Utah artist Patrick Sullivan.


The pillars depict Tulsa sights like Cain’s Ballroom, art deco architecture, the energy, aviation, and railroad industries and Native American heritage.


I love stuff like this. This monument is here to stay. An F5 tornado may topple them but they are not going anywhere.

An article from Route 66 News with video and a lot of the backstory on the monument and the artist who created it.

    Great post as always and great to have a chance and “ability to visit” again. I do hope all is well. Things are getting better here and I am hoping to return to blogging before much longer. I hope you have a great week!!

    Very nice. I saw the Western end of Route 66 in Santa Monica just a couple of weeks ago but didn’t take any photos of the marker.
