Chouteau's Landing Arts Center Gets its First Tenant

According to the Business Journal, the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum is planning to move from Oklahoma City to 10,000 sf in the Chouteau's Landing Arts Center, known to most as the Powell Square building. The move date is still up in the air, dependent on how quickly Chivvis Development is able to renovate the building.

The non-profit's collection includes 5,000 cameras and 35,000 photographic images.

Sounds like a great anchor tenant for this development and an exciting cultural venue for downtown. Perhaps it will be comparable to the new Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.

Hopefully we'll be hearing about commitments from additional artists and creative organizations soon.
