Grammy Museum to Feature Taylor Swift Exhibit
Taylor Swift has had her own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and now she'll have an exhibit at the Grammy Museum, in Los Angeles, Calif., as well. 'The Taylor Swift Experience' will open on Dec. 13, Swift's 25th birthday, and run through May 10, 2015.
"Global superstar Taylor Swift is one of popular music's biggest talents whose music is beloved by millions of fans worldwide," Bob Santelli, executive director of the Grammy Museum, says. "Telling the story of Taylor's remarkable rise to superstardom is something the museum is extremely excited about."
Included in the exhibit will be reading books from Swift's childhood, as well as never-before-seen family and childhood photos, tour costumes from her RED Tour, handwritten lyrics from her hit '22,' props from the 'Shake It Off' music video, dresses worn by Swift for her 'Mean' video and much more.
The news comes on the heels of Swift's first pop album, '1989,' which was released in October and has already sold more than two million copies, including more than one million units in its first week out. It's part of a transformation the songstress has undergone since her self-titled freshman album was released in 2006.
“I think my life has changed in ways that have surprised me,” she says. “Deciding to spend my time in New York, cutting my hair, becoming all of a sudden surrounded by this great group of strong, beautiful, smart women who challenge me and push me forward -- those are all changes in my life.”
The seven-time Grammy winner and first-ever recipient of the Dick Clark Award for Excellence recently announced her 1989 World Tour, which will kick off on May 20 in Bossier City, La. Before the end of 2014, though, she is set to make an appearance at the opening of the Grammy Museum exhibit and perform on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
