On the evening of February 27 a colossal projection of Woody Guthrie appeared on the north side of the Oklahoma State Capitol in Oklahoma City. It is the work of artist/activist Jack Fowler with the technical collaboration of Stephen Tyler. Instead of Guthrie's original words “This Machine Kills Fascists” the message “How Did It Come to This?” is written on the guitar
On an attempted return, Fowler was met by state troopers and threatened with arrest and the seizure of his equipment because he did not have a proper permit.
Fowler has released a blank image of his original art so people can write in their own statements on #WoodysGuitar.
