TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Officials plan to reveal a rendering of the design of the future Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture, a structure that will house artifacts of the state’s creative artists.

The Tulsa World reports that museum officials will unveil the facility’s structure, surprising hours and groundbreaking plans on July 16 in Tulsa.

The pop culture museum will showcase talent from hundreds of people from Oklahoma, including musicians, actors, writers and artists who’ve donated works.

Jeff Moore is the museum’s executive director. He says the museum will be placed in the Tulsa Arts District across from Cain’s Ballroom, where concertgoers are likely to visit a facility holding the collections of Oklahoma musicians like Garth Brooks. That could lead the museum to have later hours.

The museum is expected to open in 2020.
