The Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve is opening its Lewis and Clarke "Corps of Discovery" exhibit that features more than 100 paintings by Western artist Charles Fritz, 14 pieces by Michael Haynes, and more than 40 bronze sculptures by Western artist and historian Richard Greeves. The show will be open to the public beginning Saturday through the end of December.

Museum officials say a curriculum and resource guide is available for free to any Oklahoma teachers or students. Designed for students in grades five through nine, the curriculum can be adapted, and lessons also are available for high school students.
