Our Current Program

Spring into Oklahoma Museums

March 2015

If you were asked to describe a few of your favorite memories, one of them would probably feature sports in some way. We might not all be athletes or even huge team followers, but sports are just plain everywhere in America! This month, the Smithsonian brings that sports culture to Oklahoma in a nationally traveling exhibit called "Hometown Teams", all thanks to the Oklahoma Humanities Council.  First stop is Oklahoma City and then five other Oklahoma towns this year. Ann Thompson is the Oklahoma Humanities Council Executive Director and Caroline Lowery, Program Officer and  these women are pumped about this fabulous exhibit.  LISTEN NOW

During the second half of our show we visit a stunning exhibit that has just opened at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum starring women: bold, brave, and tender women. “Madonnas of the Prairie” features about 100 works of art showcasing women of the west, from the late 19th century through today. Steve Karr the new president of the museum is here to tell us all about it. LISTEN NOW

Support for The Living Room with Gerry Bonds is provided by the Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur, Oklahoma. A destination devoted to sharing and celebrating Chickasaw history and culture. More information at chickasawculturalcenter.com.
