Through March 16, artists can submit qualifications to be considered for a new public art project planned for the forthcoming Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture (OKPOP) in the Tulsa Arts District. Total artwork budget for the project is $250,000. Expected to open in 2022, OKPOP is currently under construction across from historic Cain's Ballroom. The museum will highlight Oklahoma's creative spirit and the influence of its artists on popular culture around the world. Garth Brooks, Kristin Chenoweth, James Garner, Ron Howard, Leon Russell, Wes Studi, Bob Wills, Alfre Woodard, and dozens of others will be highlighted in the museum's collections when it opens. The public art project is part of the Oklahoma Art in Public Places program, administered by the Oklahoma Arts Council. The program requires that 1.5 percent of eligible State of Oklahoma capital improvement projects be invested in public art representing the history and values of the state.
