Native American artist Mallory Taylor painted this mural as a tribute to Oklahoma and Native female artists. This Homage to Oklahoma Women Mural contains two portraits of women; the black and white image honors the memory of Tana Stroud, a Native fancy shawl dancer who lost her battle with breast cancer, painted in collaboration with Steven Grounds. The colorful pop-art portrait represents women of all nationalities, and its bright colors signify the fact that all women are a “mixture of vibrancy.”

Taylor also peppered 39 butterflies throughout the mural to represent the 39 Native American tribes in Oklahoma as well as the rebirth taking place in downtown Tulsa. The hummingbirds in the mural symbolize the confidence of women, while the Native American prayer wheel nods to Taylor’s rich heritage. Taylor also included a compass with Oklahoma in the center to show that Oklahomans will always find their way despite hardship.
