In Debby's January 12 post, she wrote about the Tingley Store. About 20 years ago, when the Tingley family closed their shop in Anadarko, Oklahoma, the museum purchased the contents. It's a huge collection of Native American objects, amassed over many decades, and one of the most notable parts of the museum's holdings.
In the old gallery, the store used to occupy a space that will become "Prehistory" after the renovation. The new Tingley Store diorama will be located in what is formerly "Dr Evans" office. From the outside, it will still look like a doctor's office, but on the inside, it will be like stepping into the Tingley's shop. These photos, showing prep work, probably don't communicate that very well, so you'll just have to use your imagination--for now!
From time to time, we'll post info here about what's going on at the museum.
