The GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles will debut a new exhibit entitled Bob Marley, Messenger.


Housed on the museum’s second floor, the exhibit will focus on Bob Marley as a private, spiritual man, and as a powerful performer who has inspired legions of fans in the 30 years since his death.

Bringing together more than 40 diverse artifacts, rare photographs and more, the exhibit features items from the private collection of the Marley family.

“Bob Marley gave the world something no other artist has. Not only did he give us brilliant music, but he also became a heroic figure. His music spread a message of hope and unity.

That message is as relevant today as it was three decades ago, and it’s our hope to help share that message with a new generation,” said GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli.

On display, visitors will see a broad array of items, including Marley’s famous Les Paul guitar; an interactive drumming station that allows visitors to learn how to play a reggae beat, more than 40 photographs of Marley both on and off stage; ticket stubs, concert posters, tour books and fan memorabilia.

Additionally, the GRAMMY Museum has conducted interviews with several artists and musicians who have been influenced by Marley and the role that he played not only as the catalyst to the reggae evolution, but also his influence on music and culture.

Interview footage will be featured in the exhibit and includes conversations with Blondie, Carlos Santana, Nas and more.
