For any fan of Johnny Cash, this sounds like a must-see. From February 5th through the 22nd, the Mills Station Arts and Cultural Center in Rancho Cordova is featuring a historical “deep dive” of Johnny’s historic performance at Folsom Prison in 1968.

According to a press release, “1968: A Folsom Redemption 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“. 

The exhibit will show how the event came together, and features 31 rare photographs from Cash’s visit. There will also be a lecture from one of the journalists, photographer Gene Beley, on Thursday night, February 6th, at 6pm.
