Jeff Moore - OKPOP - Living History

48 minutes

Jeff Moore is the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture, or OKPOP, a forthcoming museum that that will honor the state’s greatest creative talents. When OKPOP opens its doors in late 2022, it will be the culmination of 15 years of planning and Jeff has been there since the beginning.

OKPOP has been developed in partnership with the Oklahoma Historical Society, the institution where Jeff began his career as a curator. In 1995, Jeff had the opportunity to work on the Historical Society’s first new museum in decades, the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton, Okla. The vibrant and contemporary project was transformational for Jeff, who knew from that moment that he wanted to be a part of these types of endeavors.

In this episode, Jeff talks about the origin for his love of history, the relatively recent challenge of looking at pop culture from an intellectual standpoint, and the process of collaborating with Oklahoma creatives to capture their lasting legacy for future generations.
