The Woody Guthrie Center is the place where you can find the Woody Guthrie archives. Woody Guthrie was one of America’s greatest folksingers and one of the most influential and prolific songwriters. He was known for the song “This Land Is Your Land.” Woody was born in Okemah, Oklahoma although the entire America was his home from New York to California.
The Guthrie center preserves the legacy that Woody left to the Americans through his life and his life’s works. It’s in the archives that you will know of his life story and the cultural, political, and social values that are embodied in its collection. The center serves as a good repository of all his artworks, songs, and writings. You can also find some information about the Dust Bowl. The center also serves as an educational resource that teachers and students can use.
You can find several state of the art exhibits at the Woody Guthrie Center. There are also outreach programs and education programs offered by the center. It also holds a concert series to keep his legacy alive in Tulsans and for people who go to Tulsa on a pilgrimage to this ultimate destination of Guthrie fans from all over the world. Through the center anyone who loves music would know about Woody Guthrie and be aware of his role in American history.
For people who are inspired by Guthrie’s songs and artistry, the center houses a listening station, a lyric writing station, and exhibits done by other artists that change all throughout the entire year.
