In keeping the museum's mission of telling Oklahoma's story through its people, the exhibit also will highlight the history of Route 66 in Oklahoma and showcase our state's historical landmarks through eight, original watercolors by Newkirk artist, Caryl Morgan. These original works, made exclusively for the Gaylord-Pickens Museum, will be available for purchase along with prints in the Museum Store for the duration of the exhibit.
Stop by for the opening reception on Thurs., May 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum, located at NW 13th and Shartel in Midtown. The reception is free and open to the public.
