Centennial Land Run Monument, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA

The Centennial Land Run Monument commemorates the opening of the Unassigned Land in Oklahoma Territory with the Land Run of 1889. The sculpture will be one of the world’s largest bronze sculptures featuring 45 heroic figures of land run participants, frozen in motion as they race to claim new homesteads.

The frenzied energy and emotion from one instant during the run is captured in bronze by artist Paul Moore.

Located at the south end of the Bricktown Canal, the monument is a city park and is open to the public year around. While the park is open 24 hours a day, the monument is best viewed during daylight hours. Parking is adjacent to the monument, just to the east. The entrance is at 200 Centennial Ave, just off Reno Ave, between the Bass Pro Shops and the Residence Inn Hotel.
