In honor of the new LV collection featuring Jeff Koons designs, we thought we'd post some of the contemporary artists that inspire us.
Andy Warhol - "Birth of Venus 316"
Jeff Koons - "Balloon Dog"
Yayoi Kusama "Infinity Mirrored Room—The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away"
Like most of the world, we are listening to the Lorde's balmy coming-of-age Melodrama. Specifically, the misleadingly upbeat Green Light and Sober.
But, we are also listening to the return album from World Champions Portugal. The Man Woodstock. The album is an unexpected surprise from a group we've loved for years. The video for our favorite track "Rich Friends" features Glen Howerton of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Everyone loves yummy bakes goods. So, we couldn't resist when we were asked to assist with the rebranding for SugaLips Bake Shop in Little Rock, AR. They specialize in custom cakes, pastries and baked goods. The company is 100% owned by a Black woman. Please support and check them out today!
We are so happy to unveil the design for the first annual Summer Connection Block Party!
The event will feature FREE carnival games, food, a photo booth, henna tattoos, a basketball tournament, as well as the premiering of a video about the class experience. The event is free and open to the public.
Sponsored by Leadership Tulsa, Mosaic, the TPD Foundation, and the Anne & Henry Zarrow Foundation.
We could not be happier to unveil our latest design collaboration with Tulsa Juneteenth. The design was presented at a press conference featuring representatives from Tulsa Juneteenth and the Tulsa Community Foundation.
This year’s Juneteenth will be held in Downtown Tulsa June 15-18, 2017. Juneteenth is a celebration of African American freedom and achievement. The event will feature musical performances, film screenings, a comedy show and a gospel brunch. For more information, please visit Juneteenth Tulsa.
Even after a long week of Coachella live streams and podcasts, there is one song we can’t get out of our heads. They might not have made it to perform this year, but this track from Cold War Kids is definitely festival worthy. It also features Bishop Briggs. Her Coachella performance definitely met and exceeded our expectations.
The deadline for artist submissions to the "Examining Change North Tulsa" art project hosted by Living Art has been extended to April 18, 2017.

The SXSW Music Festival is an internationally acclaimed music, art and culture festival in Austin, TX. The festival is filled with too many sounds and acts to many acts to see. But, NPR is there covering every song and every performance. Each year, the NPR music editors pour over hundreds of hours of music and distill the best acts into the annual NPR Music’ Austin 100. The 2017 playlist has been released for a free limited time download.
