Extending the Legacy Unveiled at the Oklahoma Wheat Commission Offices

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 09:38:24 CDT

Extending the Legacy Unveiled at the Oklahoma Wheat Commission Offices Earlier this month, the Oklahoma Wheat Commission unveiled a new mural donated by the lead wheat breeder at Oklahoma State University, Dr. Brett Carver and his wife Terri. The name of the mural is “Extending the Legacy” and was commissioned by the famous Oklahoma artist, Dr. Bob Palmer.   The painting depicts the different eras of agriculture within the wheat industry over the last 140 years in Oklahoma. The work also places emphasis on OSU wheat research and extension programs that have made significant contributions from the past that will continue to move us into future, thus “Extending the Legacy.” The multi paneled painting is being displayed in the main entrance of the new wheat commission offices in northwest Oklahoma City. (as seen above)

Dr. Palmer originally from Walters, Oklahoma and former professor from University of Central Oklahoma is well known for his work featured on buildings in many towns throughout Oklahoma. He is most famous for his period pieces that tell individuals the history and heritage of the region.

“The Oklahoma Wheat Commission Board of Directors were elated at the donation from Brett and Terri Carver that made the wonderful opportunity of “Extending the Legacy” possible. It continues to be of great importance for all of agriculture to tell our story, the correct story! Having this housed for the wheat industry in Oklahoma City also gives us the perfect opportunity to reach out to urban audiences telling them the history and vital role our industry plays when working to feed an ever-growing population both locally and globally.” said Tom Stephens of Guymon, Chairman of the Oklahoma Wheat Commission Board. "When you look at the work our public researchers are doing within the industry at OSU and then to have them give you a gift like this certainly makes you thankful for individuals like the Carver’s. Not only do we get to see his life’s work in the field each year, we now have a work of art that reaches out to the public telling the important story of wheat.”
