Gilcrease Museum is giving you the chance to step back into the past and experience a world that we learned about in grade school. Before cars, trains and planes, the world was explored on foot and by sea. The 18th and 19th centuries brought great findings all around the world, and to document those discoveries, explorers brought along artists. Gilcrease Museum, 1400 N. Gilcrease Museum Road, in Tulsa presents Folio Editions: Art in the Service of Science. This exhibition highlights works by the expedition artists who captured a whole new scene of animals, people and places through art. Works from George Catlin, John Gould and more can be seen. This historical exhibit opens on Sunday, Aug. 4, and remains on display through March 20. Gilcrease is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is $5-$8.
