Oklahoma Pop: Intersecting History and Popular Culture

Jeffrey Moore (Oklahoma Historical Society)

This presentation will talk about the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture (OKPOP), which is dedicated to Oklahoma history and traditional art as they inspire artists through creative expression. OKPOP is a new museum slated to open 2023 and will be located in the Tulsa Arts District. Stories featured in the museum will include movies, radio, television, illustration, literature, theater, wild west shows and Route 66 — all connected to a sense of time and place through the language of music. The presenter will focus on the history of new museum, the aim behind its creation, and the roll it will play in preserving and presenting Oklahoma traditional culture.

Part of 06-06 Oklahoma Traditions and their Impact on Popular Culture, Friday, October 14, 2:30 pm–4:30 pm
