Motown Museum Opens Marvin Gaye Exhibit !
There is a fitting tribute in the works for one of the most soulful singers of our generation and others before us.
The Motown Historical Museum is set to unveil an exhibit on the late Detroit icon, which is set to include gold records, photographs and other rarely seen items from the museum’s off-site permanent collection. Being designed by museum curator Lina Stephens, the exhibit will open to the public this Friday, with a media preview and private reception being held on Thursday, and scheduled to run through September. The exhibit will be a successor to the Jackson 5 memorabilia exhibit that premiered last summer. They’re part of what museum officials say will be a rotating series of exhibits spotlighting artists from the Motown roster. Museum CEO Audley Smith released a statement saying “This exhibit continues the Museum’s goal of highlighting all of the wonderful talent that made the Motown Sound the sound of young America.” And so the memory continues…as it should. — Keenan Higgins
