OETA-The Oklahoma Network and the Oklahoma Conservation Partnership will host an advance screening of the upcoming PBS documentary “The Dust Bowl” at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8 at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

A panel discussion including dust bowl survivors featured in the film, historians and conservation experts will follow the screening of the documentary by acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns (“The Civil War, “Jazz,” Baseball”), according to a news release.

A $5 donation is suggested for tickets and seating is limited, reservations are recommended.

To reserve seating, call 405 236-3100, ext. 237 or visit tickets.okcmoa.com.

“The Dust Bowl” airs at 7 p.m. Nov. 18 and 19 on PBS.

The two-part, four-hour film documents the history of the Dust Bowl and its causes, but primarily centers on Oklahoma and the state’s dust bowl survivors.
