OSU's Postal Plaza to Become an Art Gallery

The Oklahoman's website NewsOK reports, "Oklahoma State University is renovating a downtown building called Postal Plaza with plans to turn it into a gallery to house the university's art collection. University officials hope to have the project completed by spring 2013."

Article to the article by reporter Silas Allen, "Postal Plaza dates back to the 1930s, and, as the name might suggest, it originally served as a post office. In more recent years, the building has been renovated to be used for offices. At the moment, crews are tearing out the insides of the building, he said, which left a larger, open space that is better-suited for an art gallery."

University officials chose Postal Plaza because of its historical nature and interesting architecture according to another article posted online. Because the  building is also in a central location it should make it easier for students and the public to visit.
