OKLAHOMA CITY —

The Oklahoma Legislature has recognized award-winning actress and Tulsa native Mary Kay Place for her donation to a planned popular culture museum in Tulsa.

The star of "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" and "The Big Chill" was honored Monday with special receptions in the House and Senate lounges. She donated costumes and other items from her career.

Oklahoma Historical Society officials are lobbying the legislature to pay for the proposed Tulsa museum. The planned 75,000-square-foot, four-story building would be dedicated to the influence of Oklahoma artists on popular culture. Supporters are also raising private donations for the project.

The Republican-controlled House has opposed any attempt to pass bond issues, including one to fund the museum's construction.
