The Clinton House Museum is excited to host 1968: A Folsom Redemption at the museum from September 1 to October 20, 2019. Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of a landmark event, this exhibit is a collection of photographs and memories of two journalists lucky enough to be among a handful of eyewitnesses to the historic Johnny Cash concerts at Folsom Prison. This exhibit is a program of Exhibits USA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance with Arkansas Arts Council and National Endowment for the Arts

In addition to the exhibit, we are also offering a series of programs and events that highlight Cash’s visit to Fayetteville in 1968 with Governor Winthrop Rockefeller, his role as a cultural icon internationally and locally, and Arkansas prisons and prison reform movements past and present. Check our website for more details on these and other events.
