Joan Rivers Will Live On In New Grammy Museum Exhibit
Even in death, Joan Rivers will likely prove she can still draw crowds.
The legendary comedian, who died last September after complications arose when she stopped breathing during surgery, will be the star of a brand-new exhibit called "Joan Rivers: Can We Talk?" at the Grammy Museum in downtown Los Angeles, according to the space's website. If the 2010 documentary A Piece of Work intrigued you, this inside look into the tireless entertainer's life will be worth the cost of admission and then some.
The exhibit, which will open June 8, will feature relics from Rivers' 50-plus-year career, including stage costumes (a few Bob Mackie originals, among them), family photographs, Rivers' Daytime Emmy Award and even the Joan Rivers star, straight from the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
"Earlier this year, The Recording Academy awarded my mother her very first Grammy, which was truly an honor," Rivers' daughter, Melissa, said according to a press release. "To her, comedy was music. There was a rhythm, but instead of notes, there were words. And just like any of her fellow Grammy Award winners who have been on exhibition in the museum, you know she loved to play."
"Can We Talk?" will remain open to the public until September 20.
