“Motown: The Sound of Young America,” curated by the GRAMMY Museum, highlights all facets - music, culture and politics - of the 1960s biggest sounds in soul. The new exhibition traces the evolution of the label, focusing on its major artists and musical achievements, and explores how the sound of Motown continues to influence some of pop music’s most important artists today.

In addition to stage outfits from many of Motown’s top performers, such as The Temptations, The Four Tops, The Miracles, and The Supremes, the exhibition also includes exclusive interviews with many Motown legends, letting visitors get deep inside the creative process perfected at Motown 60 years ago. Visitors will also experience interactive displays, including an opportunity to perform The Supremes’ “Stop in the Name of Love” on stage and learn The Temptations’ signature dance moves.

The exhibit will be on display through January 26, 2020.
