The Motown Historical Museum is set to unveil an exhibit on the late Detroit star, including gold records, photographs and other rarely seen items from the museum’s off-site permanent collection.
The display, designed by museum curator Lina Stephens, will open to the public Friday, after a media preview and private reception on Thursday. It’s scheduled to run through September.
The exhibit is replacing a display of Jackson 5 memorabilia that premiered last summer, itself the first notable new exhibit since the museum’s 1985 founding. They’re part of what museum officials say will be a rotating series of exhibits spotlighting artists from the Motown roster.
