Museum opens Oklahoma City Panorama exhibit 

 

Now is your chance to travel back in time and find yourself in the middle of downtown Oklahoma City as it stood in 1991, as part of "Oklahoma City Panorama." The exhibit will be on display until Feb. 10, 2008, at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, 415 Couch.

 

Sixteen years ago, photographer Mark Klett stood on top of what was once the Kerr-McGee building and captured a bird's-eye landscape of Oklahoma City. Twelve of these photographs have been pieced together to give viewers the feeling that they, too, are standing on top of the old structure.

 

"It's amazing to see how much the city has changed," said museum curator Alison Amick. "You can look at the photographs and see where the museum would be, and where the apartments would be. It's just a great way to see how much the city has evolved since then."

 

Before the hustle and bustle of Bricktown, Oklahoma City was a different place. The only way to revisit these sights from this unique perspective is through Klett's photographs. Klett is famous for his photographs of changing landscapes. His past work includes a similar panorama for San Francisco and images for U.S. geographical surveys.

 

The art museum is open daily except Mondays, with extended hours on Thursdays. Admission is $9 for adults and $7 for students and senior citizens. For more information, call 236-3100 or visit their site.
