Name of Call: Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture (OKPOP), Tulsa, Oklahoma
Eligibility: Unlimited
Budget: $250,000
Deadline: 3/16/20

The new OKPOP museum will be built and managed by the Oklahoma Historical Society and located in the Tulsa Arts District. The museum will be dedicated to the incredible history and creativity of Oklahoma’s people and the influence of those artists on popular culture around the world. The underlying theme of the museum will be “Crossroads of Creativity” and stories will include music, movies, radio, television, pop art, literature, theater, comics, humor, and Route 66. The museum will be located across the street from the historic Cain’s Ballroom, known to many as “the home of Bob Wills.” The ground floor of OKPOP will include the display of Bob Wills’ 1948 Flxible Clipper tour bus. The color gold is featured prominently in the museum’s design, influenced by the gold custom-made Fender Stratocaster famously presented in 1954 to Eldon Shamblin, guitarist for Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys. OKPOP offers a significant opportunity for dynamic and visually impactful artwork. The area of interest for the public art is the interior lobby entrance space. Please see the attached images offering detailed views of potential locations for artwork. The architectural concept for the design of the museum is “grit and glitz.” The grit of the concrete and steel contrasts with the glitz of the illuminated metal panels. The grit connects with the Oklahoma work ethic, as evidenced by the state motto, “Labor Omnia Vincit” (“work conquers all things”). The glitz speaks to the excitement associated with Oklahoma’s creatives and their impact on popular culture. The committee is interested in engaging and interactive artwork that is contemporary and relevant to the overarching themes of the museum.
