LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Grammy Museum presents California Dreamin’: The Sounds of Laurel Canyon, 1965 - 1977, an exhibition that opened on May 9, 2014. The exhibition explores the story of the Los Angeles rock scene from the mid-1960s to mid-1970s, a golden age of music, creativity and culture.

“Laurel Canyon was as much a mindset as it was a music scene,” said GRAMMY Museum executive director Bob Santelli. “The remarkably rich sounds of Laurel Canyon and the sheer number of songwriters, bands, producers, artists, engineers and record company people who have lived and worked out of Laurel Canyon prove that Los Angeles is and continues to be a vital rock scene. We felt it was important to tell that story, right here in our hometown.”

Through rare artifacts from iconic acts, interactive experiences, handwritten lyrics, photographs and more, the exhibit will teach visitors about the origins of the Laurel Canyon scene, and how it developed into a thriving music epicenter. On display, visitors will see a broad array of items, including:

• Richie Furay’s (Poco) 1970s “Nudie” Suit;
• Costumes, instruments and ephemera from the Modern Folk Quartet;
• Jim Morrison’s (The Doors) writing chair;
• Arthur Lee's (Love) 6 String Flying V guitar;
• Cass Elliot’s (The Mamas and the Papas) c.1960s, hand painted chair;
• Original Photography of Henry Diltz and Graham Nash from the era;
• Exclusive interviews with various artists and industry experts;
• Original menus, scrapbooks, handbills, posters and other ephemera;

In addition to the exhibit, California Dreamin’: The Sounds of Laurel Canyon, 1965-1977 will also include a host of public programming events, educational curricula, intimate performances, lectures and more. Additional information will be released in the coming weeks as specific related event information becomes available.

California Dreamin’: The Sounds of Laurel Canyon, 1965-1977 will be on display in The GRAMMY Museum’s Special Exhibits Gallery – where temporary exhibits are showcased on a rotating basis – through November 30, 2014. The GRAMMY Museum is located at 800 West Olympic Boulevard, Suite A245, Los Angeles, CA 90015. With an entrance off of Figueroa Street, the Museum resides within the L.A. LIVE district, at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Figueroa Street in downtown Los Angeles.
