Dedicated during the 1998 Wood Guthrie Free Folk Festival, this statue stands in the town of Guthrie's birth.

Surrounding the statue are bricks engraved with Guthrie's song titles. The Woody Guthrie Coalition sold engraved sponsorship bricks that form a walkway around the statue and park. Part of the proceeds allowed the organization to form a scholarship for graduating seniors interested in the arts.
