Leon Russell Donates Works To Planned Pop Museum

Posted: Updated:

  The Oklahoma Historical Society has acquired a large collection of works by legendary musician and native Oklahoman Leon Russell.

  The collection is intended for display in a planned pop culture museum in Tulsa.

  The historical society is seeking approval for a $42.5 million bond issue to build the OKPOP Museum in downtown Tulsa.

  A proposed $20 million bond issue to fund the museum narrowly passed the Senate last year before it was derailed in the House.

  The museum is planned as a 75,000 square foot facility dedicated to Oklahoma artists and their impact on popular culture.

  Russell attended a news conference in Tulsa to make the announcement.
