Inscription.

Gilcrease Museum pays tribute to the 13 visionary women who founded The Gillies, a volunteer organization formed in 1967 to serve the many needs of the museum. We salute these community leaders who played such an important role in developing what has become a vital partnership of sustaining support for the museum. May all who visit Gilcrease Museum be inspired by the generosity and commitment of the Gillies and their ethos of service that continues to serve as a model of civic and community engagement.
