Oklahoma Historical Society officials unveiled the design rendering of OKPOP, a museum that will be constructed in Tulsa’s Arts District, during a Monday morning news conference at historic Cain’s Ballroom.

OKPOP will be constructed across the street from Cain’s Ballroom, former home of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys. According to the news release, the design team found inspiration in a gold Fender Stratocaster custom made for Wills’ guitarist Eldon Shamblin. The guitar encouraged the project’s gold color palette. The structure was designed to house a living experience that includes event venues, stages and retail space.

OKPOP is dedicated to telling the story of the creativity of Oklahoma’s people and their influence on popular culture around the world. OKPOP’s staff is collecting artifacts, photographs, archival materials, film, video and audio recordings that represent Oklahoma’s creative history.

OKPOP is scheduled to break ground in the fall of 2018.
