On July 2 the GRAMMY Museum will unveil its latest temporary exhibit, Donna Summer: Four Seasons Of Love. Located on the Museum's fourth floor, this unique exhibit will offer visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the iconic career of the late five-time GRAMMY winner. This will mark the first exhibit highlighting the career of the legendary Queen of Disco.

"Donna Summer galvanized a diverse group of music fans and she was able to give credibility to a genre of music that had many skeptics," said GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. "We are honored to tell her story and help demonstrate why Donna Summer is not only the undisputed Queen of Disco, but also one of the most successful female artists of all time."

On display through spring 2015, the exhibit will feature gowns and costumes designed by Summer; handwritten lyrics and notes; never-before-seen photographs spanning Summer's entire career; several hand-painted pieces from the singer's critically acclaimed Summer Fine Arts Collection; and set design sketches created by Summer, among other items.

"In 1978, Donna received the GRAMMY Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, her first major industry award," said her husband Bruce Sudano. "Donna's relationship with The Recording Academy was very special to her. On behalf of our daughters Mimi, Brooklyn and Amanda, and the extended family, we are truly honored to have the GRAMMY Museum host this amazing tribute to Donna's legacy."
