LOS ANGELES (February 23, 2009) — The GRAMMY Museum, which opened in December 2008, is a 30,000 square-foot facility that explores and celebrates the enduring legacies of all forms of music, the creative process, the art and technology of the recording process, and the history of the premier recognition of excellence in recorded music — the GRAMMY® Award. The one-of-a-kind “21st Century Museum” features interactive, permanent, and traveling exhibits — with four floors of dynamic and engaging multimedia presentations. The grand opening of The GRAMMY Museum also marked the culmination of the milestone 50th Celebration of The Recording Academy® and the GRAMMY Awards.

One of the exhibits, The “Hall of Fame?, designed by Gallagher & Associates, features a sculptural column of more than 350 Shure Model 55SH Series II Microphones. The “Hall of Fame? is the place where you can dig deeply into the history of GRAMMY nominations and awards. Dedicated computer databases contain information on 50 years of GRAMMY recordings and artists, while the most recent year’s winners are honored in a contemporary display. The artifacts connect you to legendary recordings and artists that have been honored by the GRAMMY Hall of Fame and Special Merit Awards.

“The Shure 55SH Microphone has been a music industry icon for more than 60 years, as the GRAMMY has for over 50,? said Mark Brunner, Shure’s Senior Director of Global Public Relations. “We are honored that the GRAMMY Museum selected this classic microphone to evoke a profound connection to the history of music performance. The microphone sculpture, like this fabulous museum, is something that every music fan should see in person.?

The GRAMMY Museum is located within L.A. LIVE at 800 West Olympic Boulevard, Suite A245, Los Angeles, CA, 90015. For more information about The GRAMMY Museum and its programs, visit www.grammymuseum.org.
