CLEVELAND- The GRAMMY Museum Mississippi has announced the opening of it’s newest exhibit, The Taylor Swift Experience.
Debuted in L.A. on Dec. 13, 2014 it was scheduled to close on Swift’s 25th birthday, but due to an overwhelming response from the masses they kept it open until October of 2015. It then moved to New York’s Seaport District until Feb. 19th, 2017.
“This exhibit came about in 2014 where we got approval from her family to go ahead and celebrate what she’s doing,” said Nwaka Onwusa, Currator at the GRAMMY Museum L.A. Live. “We were very fascinated by Taylor Swift and her impact as a young musician and what she we as the making of global and modern day superstar.”
The exhibit officially opened Friday, March 3rd, 2017 and will stay until August 13, 2017.
It includes a look into the 10-time GRAMMY winning artists personal photographs, home videos, interactive experiences, handwritten lyrics and iconic performance outfits. Including the dress she wore in her music video for “Mean” and a banjo she played at the 54th GRAMMY Awards in 2012.
The exhibit conveniently opened two days before the museums own one-year anniversary.
“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our one-year anniversary than by hosting this incredible exhibit paying tribute to one of the most legendary artists of today,” said Emily Havens, Executive Director of GRAMMY Museum Mississippi. “After showings in Los Angeles and New York we are thrilled to bring her story to Cleveland, Mississippi, only a few hours away from her hometown in Nashville, where Taylor began her recording career.”
