Legendary musician Bob Dylan visited the White House on Tuesday to receive the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor. Dylan released his first album in 1962, and his music had a considerable influence on the civil rights movement. Below, President Barack Obama awards Dylan the prestigious medal.

The president said he found Dylan’s music transcendant, claiming it led to his “world opening up, because [Dylan] captured something about this country that was so vital.”
