TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Tulsa museum will soon open a new Bob Dylan exhibition that will showcase 12 pastel portraits the musician painted.
The Tulsa World reports that the Gilcrease Museum will display “Bob Dylan: Face Value and Beyond” from May 10th to September 15th.
The exhibit is filled with pieces from the Bob Dylan Archives, which holds more than 100,000 items from Dylan’s 60-year career.
Archive Curator Michael Chaiken says the paintings highlight Dylan’s multifaceted artistic capabilities.
The exhibit will also include handwritten song lyrics, a black leather jacket, an electric guitar, and screen tests filmed by Andy Warhol.
It’s the first major show from the archives since it was acquired by the George Kaiser Family Foundation and the University of Tulsa in 2016.
