BOB DYLAN CENTER NAMES JOY HARJO AS ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE

The Bob Dylan Center (BDC) has named U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo its first artist-in-residence. Throughout the course of her six-year appointment, the Tulsa native and member of the Muscogee Nation will present educational programs and live performances, as well as curate special exhibitions.

“As a poet, musician, playwright and author, Joy Harjo exemplifies artistry and brings light to the world through her work,” said Steve Higgins, Managing Director of the American Song Archives, which oversees the BDC. “The BDC’s programs and exhibits will explore the creative process and inspire the next generations of artists.”

Said Harjo, “When Bob Dylan stepped forward and made his path of song-making, poetry and storytelling, a path that lit a generation, he opened a creative door for others to find their way to fresh invention and imagining. I am one of those who followed. My residency will allow this legacy to be extended to the community, to encourage and share creativity.”

The BDC will celebrate its grand opening on 5/10. It will be the primary public venue for the Bob Dylan Archive, housing more than 100,000 items spanning his career. For more information on the BDC, go here.
