GRAMMY Museum Grand Opening

Today I joined Mayor Villaraigosa, Councilmember Perry, and members of the community for the grand opening of the GRAMMY Museum. The brand new museum celebrates 50 years of awards ceremonies, focusing on the development of popular music and its effects on our culture. Highlights include interactive displays that explore how new genres emerge and relate to each other, a simulated sound booth where visitors can record their own songs, and memorabilia, including Elvis’ guitar and Miles Davis’ trumpet.

The museum is located on the campus of L.A. Live, which is now celebrating the holidays with a nightly multi-media display that is free and open to the public. If you’re interested in visiting L.A. Live or the GRAMMY Museum, check out their website!
