I don't know if you're a museum person or not, or when you'll be taking your road trip, but in the Tulsa area:

Philbrook Art Museum, Tulsa
Besides their regular collections, from February 5 - April 15, 2012 will be exhibiting:

Black on Black & White - The Southwest of Laura Gilpin and Maria Martinez

Focusing, of course, on Gilpin's photography and Martinez' pottery.

I've always loved Philbrook - both the exhibits, as well as the preserved part of the villa and the back gardens. I took many an art class at Philbrook back in the day.

December 4 - April 1
