Dylan: Still one of us?

Despite the scholarship applied to Dylan's career, his Minnesota roots have gone largely unexplored, including his time at what biographer Robert Shelton calls the "university of Dinkytown."
From February 3 through April 29, the Weisman Art Museum on the Twin Cities campus will explore that sound as well as Dylan's contribution to American music and art with Bob Dylan's American Journey, 1956-1966. The exhibit comes from Seattle's Experience Music Project, but is augmented to reflect Dylan's Minnesota roots. Lectures, workshops, and a three-day symposium will add richness and depth to the exhibit.
