The Experience Music Project in Seattle will showcase a large exhibit of [lastfm]Nirvana[/lastfm]-related items starting this spring. The exhibition will be titled Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that the exhibit will begin April 16 and will showcase over 200 items related to the influential grunge group. Items on display will include instruments, lyrics and personal belongings from group members Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.
In a statement about the project, Novoselic called Cobain “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.”
The winged angel prop from Nirvana’s In Utero tour and a guitar used on the recording for MTV Unplugged will be on display at the museum. Other items will include several of Cobain’s sweaters and paintings the singer made while in high school.
