Woody Guthrie’s daughter Nora visits the soon-to-open Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa’s Brady District. She says she hopes her father’s legacy will speak not just to musicians.

“I’m just hoping that this center will expand,” she said, “and really connect to all walks of life, whether you’re an engineer, or a teacher, a scientist, an auto-mechanic—my dad wrote many songs about auto-mechanics as well.”

A ribbon cutting for the center will be held at 12:30 Saturday at 102 East Brady.
