An update on the still-in-progress musuem in downtown Tulsa.

On this edition of ST, we're discussing OKPOP, the Oklahoma Historical Society's proposed, under-construction museum on North Main in downtown Tulsa. The eye-catching building itself -- located just across the street from Cain's Ballroom -- has been completed, but an estimated $30 million (or more) is now needed to finish the building's interior, complete the gallery spaces, install exhibits, and so on. How will these funds be raised, and when, and from whom? And what exactly will the OKPOP Museum contribute to the cultural, artistic, and economic life of our city...and our state? We're joined by Jeff Moore, the project director for OKPOP; he's been vital to the OKPOP team since the museum's inception in 2008.
