Centennial Land Run Monument

Location: Bricktown Canal
Centennial Land Run Monument

The main sculptural body is a racing mass of horsepower and humanity which will spread 30 feet across and cover a distance of 100 yards. At a scale of one and a half times life-size, a single horse and rider will tower 12 feet above the ground. Separated from this racing mass are two additional figure groups: soldiers with a cannon signal the starting point, and a lone sooner waits with his horse ahead of the action. The entire length of this colossal work will stretch out longer than a football field! Such a grand scale befits this epic drama. The impressive size suggests the monumental effort of those early settlers, but the real story is found in the details. All the frenzied energy and emotion from one instant during the Run of 1889 is captured in bronze – frozen in time and space for all generations. Through Paul Moore’s masterful hand, a still and silent sculpture comes to life as an eternal, living presence.
