Visit to the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa


I visited the Woody Guthrie Center for the first time in 2019 when I attended the World of Bob Dylan Symposium.  Since it was right now the street from our hotel, I thought it was worth a second visit.  There were exhibits tracing his life from his birth in Oklahoma in 1912 to his death from Huntington's Disease in 1967.  The collection includes more than 10,000 items and continues to grow.

There was an excellent exhibit about Bruce Springsteen who was influenced by Woody.  It provides fans with an intimate look into Springsteen’s creative process, shedding light on how he became—and remains— one of the greatest live performers in rock and roll history.  It includes clips from many of Springsteen's concerts over the years.  It will be at the Guthrie Center until September 25.
