KID INVENTOR 2.0

Through November 2020

Remember when (bad) adults used to say, “Why don’t you go out and play in the traffic, kid?”  Well, definitely don’t do that!  Visit the Museum of the Great Plains for a much safer, far more educational alternative.  “Kid Inventor” features a LEGO car raceway, game programming studio, do-it-yourself construction area, paper airplane shooter, and more.  Each activity reinforces STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles, including design, assembly, testing, and improvement.  It’s so much fun, you’ll forget that you’re learning!

DEEP DEUCE & BEYOND

Through September 27, 2020

“Deep Deuce” is a historically African-American business and residential corridor along Second Street in Oklahoma City. The neighborhood gave rise to jazz guitarist Charlie Christian, blues singer Jimmy Rushing, and novelist Ralph Ellison. In this photo essay, Ron Tarver documents Deep Deuce through a series of images that capture the architecture and history of this culturally significant area.  


“Deep Deuce & Beyond” is part of the Oklahoma History Center’s traveling exhibit program.  

 

Support for the Museum of the Great Plains provided in part by the City of Lawton and the City of Lawton Hotel-Motel Tax Fund.
