Palladium Becomes Affiliate of Grammy Museum
(CARMEL) - The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles is partnering with Carmel.
Carmel's Palladium becomes the fifth official affiliate of the museum, and the third in the U.S. The Palladium is home to the Great American Songbook Foundation, which hosts a small upstairs exhibit space. The partnership with the Grammys will allow the foundation and the museum to exchange memorabilia for special exhibits.
Foundation executive director Chris Lewis says the first exhibit under the partnership will be a photographic retrospective of Frank Sinatra, sometime later this year.
Lewis and Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard say the seal of approval from the Grammys instantly raises the national visibility of both the foundation and the city.
The foundation's 3,500-square-foot archive began with the collection of pianist Michael Feinstein, the Center for the Performing Arts' artistic director. It includes the papers of "Music Man" composer Meredith Willson and Tin Pan Alley lyricist Gus Kahn.
