Friday, May 5th, will be a fun-filled meeting. Patti Payne, spokesperson for Experience Music Project, will present the program. There is extraordinary world interest in EMP, a 140,000 s.f.
interactive music museum celebrating creativity and innovation as expressed through rock ‘n’ roll and other forms of popular American music. Founded by investor Paul G. Allen and designed by
world-renowned architect Frank O. Gehry, the museum will open in Seattle this summer. Imagine the excitement surrounding this opening, as Patti gives the BBRC a look behind the scenes.
EMP, a non-profit 501[C]3, will combine the interpretive aspects of a traditional museum, the educational role of a school, the state-of-the-art research facilities of a specialized library, and the
audience-drawing qualities of live performances and popular attractions. Through a wide variety of traditional and interactive exhibits and public programs, Experience Music Project will encourage
visitors of all ages and backgrounds to listen, learn and participate in music, and experience the power and joy of music in all its forms.
Frank Gehry’s Experience Music Project is a series of buildings,
grouped together, clad in stainless steel and aluminum.
