The Taylor Swift Experience Comes Home To Los Angeles
The GRAMMY Museum at L.A. Live's most popular exhibit to date, The Taylor Swift Experience, has spent the past summer months traveling the country, but will soon return home to Southern California this September.
The exhibit originally opened on Taylor Swift's 25th birthday, Dec. 14, 2014, and was only intended to run through May 2015, but was extending through Oct. 4, 2015 due to its overwhelming popularity. Since then the exhibit has traveled around the country, most notably popping up in New York's Seaport District in 2016, and then the GRAMMY Museum Mississippi this past summer.
Following its travels around the country, the exhibit will now return home to Southern California, where it will be on display at the L.A. County Fair from Sept. 1 – Sept. 24. The exhibit includes family photos and early childhood reading books provided by Swift's family; tour costumes from the singer's The RED Tour; handwritten lyric sheets for her smash singles "Teardrops On My Guitar," "White Horse," and "22"; the banjo Swift played during her performance at the 54th GRAMMY Awards in 2012; and her 2009 GRAMMY Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for "White Horse."
Additionally, several items not included in the 2014 run of the exhibit have since been added, including tour costumes from Swift's The 1989 World Tour, outfits from the GRAMMY-winning music video for "Bad Blood," handwritten lyric sheets for "Welcome To New York," and the one-of-a-kind custom-built piano used during The 1989 World Tour.
"When the exhibit first opened at our Museum in Los Angeles nearly three years ago, it became our most successful exhibit ever, and our visitors still talk about it to this day," said GRAMMY Museum curator Nwaka Onwusa, "We are thrilled to bring The Taylor Swift Experience back to Southern California."
