Master artist Willard Stone and his legacy are being revived by family members, friends and a new board of directors with this 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Willard Stone Museum, Inc.
Board of Directors:
President, Linda Stone Callery, Claremore OK, artist
Treasurer, Michel Stone, Locust Grove OK, drafter/designer
Secretary, Steven Smith, Tulsa OK, construction manager
Pam Larkin, Claremore OK
Shaun Perkins, Locust Grove OK, museum director/writer
Rocky Stone, Inola OK
Franklin Darrell Yates, Peggs OK
Our collective goal is to acquire the building that housed the first bank in Locust Grove. This is a historical building built in 1912, and we think this will make the perfect place to house our museum. We also hope to return the building to its original profile.
In relocating to downtown Locust Grove we will be able to preserve and display more of Willard Stone’s art and have a more tourist friendly building and surrounding area.
