I saw the December schematics for the dam on the city engineer’s webpage. It’s an incredible project.

Can you provide a link?  I can't find it.

Sort of related  -  Anybody know why Philbrook didn't get the George Kravis Industrial Design Collection? Said to be one of the most impressive collections in the country.  First, it was to be housed at Philbrook in the Arts District according to promotional material from 2013.   

I know Philbrook is moving out of downtown (with the Bob Dylan Archive taking its place) and consolidating their modern/contemporary art collection on Rockford.  I wonder if they would be open to having a second location again focused on modern/contemporary art.  The parking lot next to AHHA where the Dylan Archive was going to be built would be a great location.  Not sure if Gilcrease has a modern collection but they could have a place there as well.

I saw that Crystal Bridges announced a big expansion this morning and was curious if there's any news on the Gilcrease demo/rebuild? - https://crystalbridges.org/blog/crystal-bridges-museum-of-american-art-reveals-plans-for-major-expansion-designed-by-safdie-architects/

Quote
Bentonville, Ark. — Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art today revealed plans for an expansion that will increase the size of the current facilities by 50 percent. Adding nearly 100,000 square feet to the 200,000-square-foot facility, the expansion will allow the museum to showcase its growing collection and welcome more visitors to experience the power of art, in an inclusive environment. Envisioned to support Crystal Bridges’ commitment to free access to art for all, the new space will increase capacity for presenting art and exhibitions, educational and outreach initiatives, cultural programming, and community events.

I am curious as well. I haven't seen anything in a while. It's odd how quite most of these Vision projects are or maybe I'm just missing the coverage on it. There's been very little fanfare with most of the projects it seems like, counter to the original Vision package. Not sure if it's because they're all going through things like Gilcrease where the project isn't even what was sold to voters in the first place. I do hope the new design is built with the ability to expand down the road, given the collections Gilcrease owns there's no reason it be close to 200,000 to 300,000 sq. ft. Maybe some donors will come around down the road to expand the museum.

Found this on the city's Vision website (apparently outdated):

 PROJECT TIMELINE:
The following timeline is a fluid estimate of major project milestones. As with any large design project, dates are subject to change.
March 25 (2019): Architect submissions due to City of Tulsa April: Mayor’s Task Force short lists the architects
May-June (2019): Architect interviews
June (2019): Construction manager selected  (This item was completed in July 2019)
July (2019): Mayor’s Task Force selects architect firm (This item was completed in June 2019)
July 2019-July 2021: Design phase  (I guess we're still in the Design phase and they must plan to be in Design phase for a while longer, or there would surely be some indication of when the Museum will be closing for its 2-year construction phase)
January 2021: Construction begins

PLAN FOR IMPROVEMENT:
• One 5,000-square-foot changing gallery for traveling exhibitions
• Three changing galleries designed primarily for Gilcrease Collection • Open storage to display more of the Gilcrease Collection
• Three core thematic galleries
• Dedicated education space
• Helmerich Great Hall
• New lobby and retail store
• Café
• New facade for museum entrance


Also found this Facebook post from late Feb 2020:
Design phase was starting and would take about 2 years.

Waiting for Vision 2025 to chime in  Wink

I'm excited for this, Gilcrease is awesome and this is an opportunity for it to be a much larger attraction.
