An American Icon
March 04, 2016 - June 05, 2016
In celebration of Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday, HistoryMiami Museum will feature Sinatra: An American Icon, a multi-media exhibition exploring the life of the multiple GRAMMY Award winner. The exhibition, curated by the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, traces 100 years of Sinatra’s career and impact on American culture, from Hoboken, N.J., through superstardom. Chronicling the meteoric rise of his music career, his Hollywood success, personal life, and humanitarian work, the exhibition includes never-before-seen photos, family mementos, rare correspondence, personal items, artwork, and, of course, music, to offer a look into Sinatra’s legacy.
Curated by HistoryMiami, a special display will highlight Sinatra’s connections to the Miami area. During the mid-20th century, Sinatra not only performed at local venues, but also shot several movies and television programs on location in the region, including at the famed Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. On view will be concert programs, movie and television memorabilia, and other artifacts that tell Sinatra’s Miami story.
