Shadow Shot Sunday – Villa Philbrook

Philbrook - Villa Philbrook 2

Topaz Impressions

The Philbrook Museum of Art is one of my favorite picture taking places. From the galleries to the gardens to the building itself it is a great place to take your camera. It is an “Italian Renaissance Villa” built in the late 1920’s by  Tulsa oilman Waite Phillips for his home. He later donated it to the City of Tulsa for use as a museum. It has grown since then and is a treasure.  We have a membership, courtesy of my sweet MIL, so I go there ever month or so just to walk around with my camera. I have been there dozens of times over the years and always find something new.

    The Philbrook Museum is so beautiful, and I love visiting there also! I like this view you shared, a different shot than the typical view from the tempietto that is most often featured in photos of the museum. I also like the gardens on the east? side of the building.

    It’s been a long time since I walked the grounds of Philbrook and even longer since I visited Gilcrease. I need to take a “Museum Day” field trip. We have memberships to Crystal Bridges here in Bentonville and it’s been several months since my last visit there as well. I really need an art fix.
