An Exhibition Celebrating The Life And Career Of Late Comedienne Joan Rivers Is To Open At The Grammy Museum In Los Angeles Next Month (Jun15).
Costumes, awards, books, photographs and travel trunks belonging to the late funnywoman will go on display as part of the Joan Rivers: Can We Talk? collection.
It opens on 8 June (15), on what would have been Rivers' 82nd birthday.
Her daughter Melissa says, "Earlier this year, The Recording Academy awarded my mother her very first Grammy, which was truly an honor. On this occasion, which celebrates her 82nd birthday, it's also an honor to have her incredible legacy included in the Grammy Museum's ongoing tribute to the greatest comedic icons of all time... 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."
In February (15), Rivers won a posthumous Grammy Award for her spoken word album Diary of a Mad Diva but was controversially snubbed from the In Memoriam segment of the ceremony.
Rivers died in September (14), aged 81, following complications during minor throat surgery.
