The Venerate Outpost.

SLUMGULLION (The Venerate Outpost) will be closed from May 2024 through Summer 2025 due to surrounding construction.

Philbrook is proud to partner with award-winning artist Karl Unnasch to present “SLUMGULLION (The Venerate Outpost),” a full-scale log cabin built from the skeleton of a late-1800s pioneer home.

At night, the cabin glows from within, thanks to:

  • Stained glass windows made from locally donated glass
  • Colorfully tiled roof (made from t-shirts dipped in a durable resin)
  • More than 100 found-glass lamps donated by the community
  • Multi-colored fabric chinking between the logs
  • LED lighting embedded into the fabric chinking

This permanent installation will inspire and facilitate programming, creating a gathering space both natural and enchanting. “SLUMGULLION” provides a highly aesthetic and intriguing space for a new genre of provocative and rewarding experiences.

The project is made possible with generous support from The George Kaiser Family Foundation, The George & Wanda Brown Foundation, The Kathleen Patton Westby Foundation, and Melton Truck Lines.
