Woody Guthrie (1912-67) was a writer, folksinger, and illustrator whose work focused on the social, political and economic issues of his day. Born in Okemah, Oklahoma, his ties to the state ring strongly.
This Woody Guthrie Mural, painted in his honor, can be found on the west side of the Tulsa Paper Company Building, which is now home to the Woody Guthrie Center. The Center is a museum dedicated to the artist and celebrates his life, art, and accomplishments with music and memorabilia.
