On Aug. 15 the GRAMMY Museum, in conjunction with the family of Whitney Houston, will launch Whitney! Celebrating The Musical Legacy Of Whitney Houston, the first major museum exhibition exploring the extraordinary life and career of the six-time GRAMMY winner. The exhibition will debut the same week as the premiere of Sparkle, Houston's last film before her passing in February.

Whitney! will provide an in-depth look at all aspects of Houston's creative life. Bringing together a collection of diverse artifacts, rare photographs and footage, the exhibit will feature dozens of items from the private collection of the Houston family, including stage costumes worn by Houston, such as her gown worn at the 36th Annual GRAMMY Awards; albums and career scrapbooks from Houston's early career; and ticket stubs, concert posters, tour books, and fan memorabilia.

Additionally, the GRAMMY Museum has interviewed artists and musicians who have worked with or have been influenced by Houston, sharing their perspectives on her gift of performance that astounded and touched fans all over the world.

Whitney! will be on display in the GRAMMY Museum's special exhibits gallery through February 2013.
