When will the time capsule car that was buried for Tulsa's Centennial 1998 be dug up?

In celebration of Tulsa's Centennial 1998 (Tulsa was incorporated on January 18, 1898), a time capsule was buried on January 17, 1998 in Centennial Park, located at 1028 E. Sixth Street (Sixth and Peoria). Stored in a vault above the ground, the purple, Chrysler Prowler was enclosed in a seamless plastic "box," specially made manufactured here in Tulsa for the time capsule. Officials drained the oil and other fluids, replacing them with synthetics that won't degrade, officials said. And the vault itself was filled with an inert gas to keep the exterior in good shape.

What are some facts about "The American" - the proposed monument to be built in the Tulsa area?

Shan Gray, an Edmond artist and youngest son of an Osage father and European-mix mother, is the designer of the proposed 21-story sculpture, called "The American".

At one time, the proposed site for the monument was Holmes Peak.  According to a KOTV report (4/17/12), the city of Sand Springs is interested in working with Gray.
