This exhibit features 10 Members of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame who helped establish Oklahoma's museums during the twentieth century. Drawn from several cultural institutions, these stories reveal the many contributions made that defined Oklahoma's early cultural community and continue to have an impact today. The exhibit highlights artists who cultivated successful visual arts careers while helping establish arts institutions that continue to support artists today. Also featured are collectors, whose donations of precious art and artifacts served as the founding collections for museums. Finally, the exhibit explores the impact of philanthropists, many connected to the oil and gas industry, on Oklahoma's early cultural institutions.
