Artist Billy Brakhage painted the well-known “Greetings from Austin” postcard mural in the late 90s. In 2015, Brakhage dreamed up a postcard mural for Tulsa, Oklahoma much in the same style as the famous Austin, Texas mural. The Tulsa mural includes various symbols, landmarks and messages from the city, hidden inside the letters spelling out its name.

The mural includes the Appeal to the Spirit statue, a former motel, the BOK tower and the Center of the Universe. Brakhage also painted the old Tulsa Drillers stadium and Atlas with four stars, representing the four solar eclipse patterns that will occur in the next 30 years. Brakhage explains that the inspiration for the Atlas image comes from the fact that in 2045, a solar eclipse will take place right above Tulsa at noon on August 12.
