OKPOP Architectural Designs

Design renderings were unveiled on July 16, 2018, revealing OKPOP's architectural concept of "grit and glitz."

"The 'grit' is the concrete and steel that speaks to the work ethic and drive of our citizens. The 'glitz' is the illuminated metal panels that speak to the bright lights and wonder associated with the substantial contributions of Oklahoma’s creatives and their impact on popular culture," said architect Chris Lilly.

OKPOP will be dedicated to the creative spirit of Oklahoma's people and the influence of Oklahoma artists on popular culture around the world.

The underlying theme will be "Crossroads of Creativity," whether it is in the field of music, film, television, theatre, pop art, comic books, literature, or humor.

OKPOP will collect artifacts, archival materials, film and video, and audio recordings that reflect Oklahoma's influence nationally and internationally.
