Admission information for the 3 story centre will be released later in the year.
A museum with 100,000 artifacts from Bob Dylan’s 60 year career will open on the 10th May, 2022 in the Tulsa Arts District in Oklahoma.
The Bob Dylan Center was announced on Instagram on May 12th and concludes the collection of the legendary singer’s secret works. The museum features handwritten lyrical manuscripts, instruments, notebooks and unreleased recordings and film performances, including the earliest known version of, ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right.’
The archive was acquired by the University of Tulsa along with the Kaiser Family Foundation for between $15 million and $20 million dollars in 2016. The American Songs Foundation founded the centre and were backed by the Kaiser Foundation.
The original estimated value of the archive was $60 million however the majority of it was donated. Dylan also recently sold the publishing rights of his entire discography to Universal Music.
Dylan, who will soon turn 80, released his latest album Rough and Rowdy Ways in 2020. Click here to order the Bob Dylan Special Issue of Hot Press Magazine – featuring a St. Vincent flip-cover – out today.
