EXPERIENCING THE DUST BOWL - TULSA
Ongoing Exhibit

Woody Guthrie Center
102 East M.B. Brady Street
Tulsa, Oklahoma 74103
Information: 918/574-2710

The Woody Guthrie Center has a new ongoing exhibit that allows visitors to truly experience the power of a Dust Bowl storm through virtual reality technology. Step back in time through this multi-sensory experience to fully understand events that affected those living in the region. Since this was a man-made disaster, it also provides an opportunity to explore the way people affect the environment. 


THE CHEROKEE KID: A WILL ROGERS EXHIBIT - PARK HILL
September 29, 2018, through March 30, 2019


Cherokee Heritage Center
21192 S. Keeler Drive
Park Hill, OK  74451
Information: 918/456-6007

This OH-sponsored exhibit highlights Will Rogers' ties to his Cherokee family, culture, and communities. The exhibit illustrates Rogers' family history from the removal from their homelands in the east and their settlement in Indian Territory as "Old Settlers" to accounts of his life growing up in the Cherokee Nation. Rogers' entry into adulthood coincides with the Curtis Act, allotment, and statehood. The Cherokee Kid illuminates how these events shaped him as a man in the Cherokee Nation and as an American icon.
