Grammy Museum to premier first large-scale exhibition exploring Los Angeles music history

LOS ANGELES, CA.- On Wednesday, February 22, 2012, The Grammy Museum, in conjunction with the Getty initiative Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945 – 1980, will unveil its latest special exhibit, Trouble In Paradise: Music and Los Angeles, 1945-1975. Located on the Museum’s fourth floor, the exhibit explores thirty years of the pop music scene of Los Angeles, and its related culture, politics, and popular art. The GRAMMY Museum has partnered with University of Southern California professor Josh Kun, who is serving as co-curator. “This is such a crucial, formative period in the history of music in Los Angeles,” says Kun. “It’s also a period of great social and cultural transformations, from the building of the freeways to multiple civil rights uprisings, and we hope to use this exhibit to highlight music’s role in shaping the city’s post-World War II identity.” The
