Nirvana Exhibit In Seattle
The Pulse of Radio reports that the largest-ever NIRVANA exhibit will open next April in Seattle. According to the Seattle Post Intelligencer, "Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses" will feature 200 rare items, including instruments, Kurt Cobain's handwritten lyrics for NIRVANA songs "Spank Thru" and "Floyd the Barber", the yellow cardigan worn Cobain wore in the early '90s, the reel-to-reel tape machine on which he recorded material for his early bands and photos submitted by the band and family members.
Founder/bassist Krist Novoselic said Cobain "was a visionary artist who touched people all over the world. It's great that there will soon be a collection that celebrates that contribution to music and culture. There's a story with NIRVANA at its center, but it's a story that also includes the many people, bands and institutions that make up a music community. The show is a celebration of Northwest music."
The exhibit will run from April 16, 2011 to April 22, 2013.
