2012 marks the 70th birthday of Jimi Hendrix, and EMP returns to its roots with a tribute to one of rock’s most masterful and influential artists. This new exhibition focuses on Hendrix’s time in London, featuring rare costumes, instruments, photographs, albums, and a collection of never-before-seen artifacts from the estate of Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer, Mitch Mitchell. EMP will organize commemorative programs and events throughout the year to mark major milestones in Hendrix’s career, including the 45th anniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival and the release of Purple Haze.
EMP is located in the landmark Frank Gehry building at the base of the Space Needle at 325 5th Avenue N, Seattle, WA 98109
