Yesterday The GRAMMY Museum unveiled a new, expanded exhibit called “X: 40 Years of Punk in Los Angeles.” The exhibit is being displayed on the second floor in the Museum’s Special Exhibits Gallery.
Items on display include original instruments and played by the band, handwritten lyrics and notebooks by Exene Cervenka and John Doe original concert flyers for L.A. shows, film, photographs and artifacts.
“When we were in the early stages of developing the exhibit, we knew what an important story we’d be telling, but we had no idea just how many photographs, artifacts, and other items we would have access to,” explains GRAMMY Museum Curator Nwaka Onwusa. “Thanks to X, we outgrew our previously planned space before the exhibit even opened! We can’t wait to share this exhibit with our visitors, and we are so honored to be giving X the spotlight they deserve.”
The LA Beat is pleased to give you this preview of “X: 40 Years of Punk in Los Angeles.” The exhibit will be on display through spring 2018.
