Bob Dylan Center Tulsa, OK


“Creativity has much to do with experience, observation, and imagination…”

“Creativity is: a funny thing. When we’re inventing something, we’re more vulnerable than we’ll ever be.”

The Bob Dylan Center is committed to inspiring students of all ages to express their creativity and passion through music and the arts. Through its educational programming, the center provides schools with an opportunity to explore Bob Dylan’s legacy and his impact on popular culture. 

A visit to the Bob Dylan Center offers students a chance to gain insight into the creative process and be inspired by Dylan’s career. By connecting students with Dylan’s work, the center hopes to help them develop their own unique voices, as well as foster a greater appreciation for music and the arts.
