St. Louis Photographer commemorates Woody Guthrie's 100th Birthday

with a photography exhibit of "Woody Guthrie's New Years Rulin's"

Here is an exerpt from the RiverFront Times article from  May 2012 (LINK) 

" A local photographer is commemorating Woody Guthrie's 100th birthday
by giving a modern twist to a series of resolutions the iconic singer made back in the 1940s...

Guthrie - an Oklahoma-born folk singer and political activist - created his
New Years Rulin's in 1942, a list of 33 aspirations for the coming year. (LINK)
The Rulin's encompassed everything from professional goals ('Write A Song Every Day')
to personal hygiene ('Wash Teeth If Any') to political beliefs ('Help Win War - Beat Fascism')."
