Join us on Saturday, June 17 at 3 p.m. for a tour of the GRAMMY Museum, a celebration of the power of music with four floors of exhibits, interactive experiences and films complete with exhibits highlighting the history of the GRAMMY Awards and artifacts from artists like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Smokey Robinson. The more than two dozen exhibits explore everything from rock and hip-hop to country, classical, Latin, R&B, and jazz.
In addition to the permanent exhibits, we’ll see:
Rhymes & Reasons: The Music of John Denver. The exhibit chronicles Denver’s life, philanthropy and creative inspirations through unique artifacts from the private collection of the John Denver estate.
For the Good Times: The Artistry of Kris Kristofferson, a celebration of Kristofferson’s extraordinary life.
Ella At 100: Celebrating the Artistry of Ella Fitzgerald, commemorating 100 years of Fitzgerald’s lasting legacy through rare recordings, photos, and one-of-a-kind stage costumes.
Monterey International Pop Festival: Music, Love, and Flowers, created in collaboration with Lou Adler, GRAMMY®-winning producer and co-founder of the Monterey International Pop Festival. The exhibit explores how music became the counterculture’s most significant cultural expression in 1967 when thousands flocked to the Bay Area for the Monterey Pop Festival.
