In 1975, Loy Bowlin reinvented his life and transformed into the “Original Rhinestone Cowboy.” That adopted persona inspired him to convert his home into a dazzling art environment. Folklorist Jennifer Joy Jameson adds original research and oral histories from those who knew Bowlin to this presentation of the “Beautiful Holy Jewel Home.”
