Greenwood Rising

Tulsa, OK // Completed 2021

Greenwood Rising follows the rise, fall, and reemergence of the Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Through immersive audio/visual exhibits, large-scale graphics, and detailed scenic elements, visitors travel through the experiences of residents of Greenwood and survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.

This moving experience incorporates elements of life on Black Wall Street including a holographic barbershop interactive, large recreations of what survivors might have experienced during the massacre, and areas for visitors to continue the dialogue and make commitments to furthering racial reconciliation. 1220 was honored to be part of such a meaningful and important project for the city of Tulsa.
