Here at The American Indian Cultural Center and Museum, we are optimistically anticipating a new time of growth and change – a special time of development and life. What better time to celebrate this than the time of the vernal equinox – the beginning of Spring!
There is much anticipation in the air as we await significant decisions to be made from State leaders and others regarding the roadmap to completion for The Center. In the meantime, our team is rapidly advancing the Exhibition Design and Museum Programs that will greet the world with the inspiring stories of Oklahoma’s diverse and vibrant American Indian Cultures. Through the interpretive exhibitions, Oklahoma has the opportunity to share our unique history like no other place in the world. We continue to work with tribes, Native communities and others to advance our efforts. Current exhibition design activities include analyzing and interpreting each of the signature exhibition spaces independently while simultaneously considering how they relate to the overall experience.
We are excited to share that the North Gallery, South Gallery and Discovery Center are all approaching their final phase of content development. Transforming cultural content into memorable museum experiences involves so much – engaging knowledgeable and special people to determine the most appropriate interpretive methods for sharing cultural stories. We continue to work internally and out visiting Oklahoma’s communities to identify and capture specific stories, objects and images. We have a great deal of work to accomplish in opening The Center; but, we have come so far in realizing this important vision. It has truly taken so many special communities and people to bring us to our present point of development. We would like to express our most grateful appreciation to you, our supporters and partners, in making this dream to build The American Indian Cultural Center and Museum a reality.
