This exhibition follows folk singer Woody Guthrie's (1912-1967) life through his personal history and artistic development. The exhibition also explores how he infused in his music the tragedies and hard times of the common man, which gave his music purpose and sparked a life-long dedication to social activism. The conclusion features such contemporary artists as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and Billy Bragg, who have been influenced by his work.
