ABOUT THE PROJECT

“Johnny Cash: Arkansas Icon” explores the musician’s Arkansas connections over the decades, covering his 1930s childhood in Dyess, Arkansas, through his comeback at the turn of the 21st century. The exhibit places special emphasis on connections between his Arkansas roots and his music from his first performance in Little Rock in 1955 to a 2002 music video.
