My computer suggest "halls" in place of "walls" for the title. Doesn't get the joke.
The biggest development lately has been the framing of the Terry K Bell Exhibition Gallery and the Oklahoma Museum Network area. That part of the building will look quite different in the future. The soaring walls will give the rooms kind of a grand feel. But right now it's just a lot of steel.
Plywood has started going up in the Artistry of the Plains area, across from the Tornado Theater, and on the walls beneath the North Mezzanine. The area under the mezzanine will host a barbed wire exhibit, activities related to ranching and agriculture, and also a hide painting display and activity.
The Prehistory area, where the dig site diorama and activity will be, has been fully framed. The west wall has closed one of two entrances to what used to be a blacksmith's shop, but in the new gallery will be part of the Tingley Indian Store diorama. For those who have visited the Museum of the Great Plains in the past, these and other changes will definitely make things look new!
From time to time, we'll post info here about what's going on at the museum.
