Motown Museum unveils new 'girl group' exhibit

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

In the 1960s, Motown's stable of dazzling girl groups was unequaled on the pop music scene.

The Marvelettes, The Vandellas, The Velvelettes, and The Supremes were crucial to Motown's ascent as the country's most successful independent record label; as were the invaluable studio contributions of The Andantes, who made everyone on the label sound better with their sweet gospel-imbued harmonies.

In a brand new exhibit at the Motown Museum, these pioneering women will have the spotlight all to themselves. "We are very proud to exhibit these recording artists and the contributions they have made to music, style, and popular culture," says Museum Interim CEO Allen Rawls. "We also want to show how they achieved stardom through their persistence, drive, and talent."

The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and children.
