The work is being offered to the museum for purchase and is currently on loan and on display at the museum.
If acquired, “No Man's Land” will be the first major Ruscha work held in a public collection in Oklahoma.
“Although contemporary art is widely accepted and appreciated in other parts of the United States, it is still a relatively new genre in the Midwest,” d'Humieres said.
“This iconic piece deserves to be a part of the state's patrimony.”
