Second year Interior Design students at the University of Oklahoma Christopher C. Gibbs College of Architecture, led by faculty members Mia Kile and Rick Skaggs, are partnering with the National African American Jazz Legacy Museum on a design project.

To kick off the project, Rosetta Funches, co-founder of the museum, joined by museum board members, recently presented memories of Oklahoma City, its history and the origins of jazz to the class. The students are now developing interior design proposals for the new museum, which will be built in Oklahoma City.
