 What was once an auto part warehouse is now the home of the Woody Guthrie Center at the Guthrie Green Friday, April 26, 2013 in Tulsa, Okla. It took Woody Guthrie's hometown of Okemah more than 30 years after his death to finally celebrate his life and work with an annual music festival, and signs of acknowledgment in other parts of Oklahoma have been rare. The Woody Guthrie Center opens Saturday in Tulsa, it won't mark some uneasy truce between Oklahoma and the Dust Bowl balladeer and his kin. The center's debut will kick off a two-day celebration that affectionately, albeit belatedly, welcomes the native son home with open arms and all the fanfare his longtime supporters can muster.
