HONORING MAYOR ROBERT J. LAFORTUNE




The PAC Trust has commissioned a new portrait by Tulsa artist Nathan Opp of former Mayor Robert J. LaFortune to celebrate the Performing Art Center’s 40th anniversary and to honor Robert J. LaFortune’s dedicated leadership and service to the Trust. LaFortune’s public service contributions to Tulsa are exceptional.

As City of Tulsa commissioner of streets and public property (1964-70) and mayor (1970-78), he continued the development of the city’s expressway system, led the massive land annexation effort, launched the floodplain mapping for flood prevention and was instrumental in building the Port of Catoosa.

Perhaps his proudest achievement was working with John Williams of the Williams Companies for private-public funding to create Tulsa’s Performing Arts Center. Long anticipated, the Trust proudly adds LaFortune’s portrait alongside those of John Williams, Leta Chapman, Kathleen Westby and other PAC and Trust champions.
