It's Been Good To Know Yuh: Woody Guthrie in Pampa, 1929-1936 EXHIBIT
Curated by Woody Guthrie Archives Curator, Jorge Arevalo, this exhibit will illustrate how the years Woody Guthrie spent in Pampa, Texas, from age 17 formed the foundation of a life that was to influence the folk music genre for the generations to come. Family tragedy, the Depression and Dust Bowl years, and picking up a guitar and giving a voice to the plight of the American worker were the driving forces that guided Woody throughout his prolific, but too-short career.
