Special New Exhibit Features Rarely Seen Selections from Michael Jackson's Personal Wardrobe

LOS ANGELES (Feb. 6, 2009) - On February 7, 2009, The GRAMMY Museum will unveil Michael Jackson: HIStyle. This one-of-a-kind exhibit will feature a selection of the elaborate clothing that has come to define the \"King of Pop's\" uniquely personal style. Located on the Museum's third floor, this exhibit on display for a limited time only will offer visitors the unprecedented opportunity to get up close and personal with one of pop culture's most iconic looks.

\"The GRAMMY Museum is excited for this rare chance to share this material with our visitors,\" said Chief Curator Ken Luftig Viste. \"Michael Jackson is undeniably one of the most significant entertainers in pop music history, and the pieces' starpower — and design — is striking. Few, if any, have ever before been made available to the public in this way.\"

Including eight elaborately embellished jackets, two gloves, and more, the exhibit will be on display until mid-April 2009. Highlights include jackets worn on the Victory tour, at Jackson's 1984 American Music Awards appearance, and at the dedication of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. All are elaborately bejeweled, beaded, and detailed - with one piece weighing nearly fifteen pounds.

\"As a 21st Century museum, we will update our exhibit content frequently,\" said Executive Director Robert Santelli. \"Though we've only been open a short time, Michael Jackson: HIStyle allows us to demonstrate our steadfast commitment to putting that goal into practice. Plus, it's an amazing collection.\"

p>Programs related to Michael Jackson: HIStyle will be announced shortly.
