NEWS OF INTEREST TO OUR MEMBERS

I.M. Pei Model Help
Please see the message we received on the I.M. Pei Model.  If anyone is willing to help, please feel free to reach out to Jennifer at her contact information listed below.  

Hello,

My name is Jennifer Griggy. I am with the OKC/County Historical Society. We have the I.M. Pei Plan Model in our collection and it is currently on display in the Hart Building. The model needs some minor restoration work and dusting. I am seeking your help in finding an architecture firm or list of firms that might be interested in working on the model. We are having our annual Pathmaker Award gala October 26th at the Skirvin and want to have it on display for the gala.

The I.M. Pei model is an incredible piece and should be handled by someone who knows a lot about architectural models, which is why I am approaching you. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would love to talk to you about any questions you might have or provide you with any details. My cell phone number is 405-312-4042. Of course, you can reach me through this email, newsproduc72@yahoo.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you and have a great day,
Jennifer Griggy
