It's always been my impression Gilcrease was designed to blend into its surroundings rather than stand out.  As a result, the entrance is at the highest point of the property looking almost like a cave opening and then flows down the hill and incorporates the view of the Osage Hills from the Vista room. 

If that's the view from the restaurant/eating area, I enjoy it.  Good Sunday brunch spot.

Gilcrease museum expansion update:

University of Tulsa hires nationally-reknown firm to help redesign Gilcrease Museum

The $65 million overhaul of Gilcrease Museum won’t begin for at least two years, but perhaps the most important decision related to the massive construction project has already been made.

The Gilcrease National Advisory Board recently endorsed the museum entering into an agreement with Gallagher & Associates to do an interpretive master plan and feasibility study for the museum. The University of Tulsa operates Gilcrease for the city.

That's pretty cool.  I hope the concept of linking Gilcrease to the Riverside Trail System is still part of the master plan on that.

Looks horrid.  Cold, stark, drab, boring, and uninviting.
