The Guthrie Green interactive fountain, named after the American music icon, produces five light and water shows, each completely different in performance and display. Four water features, a fog, mist, gush, and seep fountain, are made of solid black gabbro in different shapes, measuring 5-ft L x 5-ft W x 2.5-ft H each. Their effects range from LED color changing light systems with fog to simple white lights with bubble jets. The fountain field, which is made of a pre-assembled structural framing and custom-cut, flamed Bohus granite pavers, is approximately 34-ft in diameter. All 37 nozzles can be controlled independently of each other offering an unlimited amount of interactive display. After extensive value engineering examination, Kusser Fountainworks fabricated and installed both the natural stone features and all five mechanical, electrical, filtration, and sanitation systems. 37 LED lights and water switches were programmed for multiple interactive light and water shows. As is customary with all Kusser projects, Guthrie Green was completed by performing the initial start-up and training the maintenance staff.
Guthrie Green was created at the initiative of the George Kaiser Family Foundation, which converted one city block, a former industrial site in the centre of the Brady Arts District of Tulsa, into a 2.7 acres park.
Featuring a stage, the dock pavilion, tree lined paths, shade structures, water features and a large lawn it offers space both for family activities and peaceful escapes.
