The Hall of Fame exhibit at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles features a sculptural column of more than 350 Shure Model 55SH Series II microphones. The Hall of Fame is the place where visitors can dig deeply into the history of Grammy nominations and awards.

The Grammy Museum, which opened in December 2008, is a 30,000-square-foot facility that explores and celebrates the enduring legacies of all forms of music, the creative process, the art and technology of the recording process, and the Grammy Award. The museum features interactive, permanent and traveling exhibits, with four floors of dynamic and engaging multimedia presentations. The grand opening of The Grammy Museum also marked the culmination of the milestone 50th celebration of the Recording Academy and the Grammy Awards.

Gallagher & Associates designed the Hall of Fame exhibit. Dedicated computer databases contain information on 50 years of Grammy recordings and artists, while the most recent year's winners are honored in a contemporary display. The artifacts connect visitors to legendary recordings and artists that have been honored by the Grammy Hall of Fame and Special Merit Awards.

“The Shure 55SH microphone has been a music industry icon for more than 60 years, as the Grammy has for over 50,” says Mark Brunner, Shure’s senior director of global public relations. “We are honored that the Grammy Museum selected this classic microphone to evoke a profound connection to the history of music performance. The microphone sculpture, like this fabulous museum, is something that every music fan should see in person.”

The Grammy Museum is located within the L.A. Live complex at 800 West Olympic Blvd., Suite A245, Los Angeles, Calif., 90015. For more information about the Grammy Museum and its programs, visit
