While the Grammy Museum’s physical location remains closed due to COVID-19, the museum has announced a new exhibit upon reopening, “Motown: The Sound of Young America,” presented by City National Bank.
“Our curatorial team has been hard at work preparing for our reopening. We are thrilled to finally update everyone about some of what our community can look forward to when that time comes, while still making some of that content available virtually in the meantime,” Grammy Museum President Michael Sticka said.
The exhibition traces the evolution of the famed record label, focusing on its major artists and musical achievements, and explores how the sound of Motown continues to influence some of pop music’s most important artists today.
In addition to stage outfits from many of Motown’s top performers, such as the Temptations, the Four Tops, the Miracles and the Supremes, the exhibition also includes exclusive interviews with many Motown legends.
In celebration, Motown Records will take over this month’s Spotlight Saturdays, the museum’s virtual program series featuring up-and-coming artists in sit-down interviews and performances every Saturday on its new streaming platform, Collection:live.
This month’s Spotlight Saturdays include Joy Denalane on Dec. 5, Chaz French on Dec. 12, Asiahn on Dec. 19 and Njomza on Dec. 26.
