2021 Exhibit: Firewheel Folk

The firewheel is Oklahoma’s state wildflower.

The exhibit is open now! We will have an Exhibit Celebration on July 17, 2021. The event is made possible with a grant from Oklahoma Humanities.

The opening celebration will include a poetry reading with free copies of the exhibition booklet, a Chautauqua of Oklahoma Flowers telling us their history in the state, a talk/presentation by Oxley Nature Center naturalist Amy Morris Marcoux, and an awards ceremony for the ROMP Rummage Flower Art Challenge.

In December 2020, ROMP moved to its new location at 416 E. Main in downtown Locust Grove. Along with this move, the museum has been able to expand its services to offer a gift shop featuring exhibit-themed and poetry-related items, a garden/outdoor space with a beehive and bat and butterfly boxes, workshop and craft space, and a poetry library.

This program is funded in part by Oklahoma Humanities (OH) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in the program do not necessarily represent those of OH or NEH.
