(MURFREESBORO) To make the magic of the Grammy Awards last long beyond the ceremony, the James E. Walker Library has an exhibit to please any music lover.
"A Legacy of Excellence: MTSU at the Grammys" is on display on the first floor of the library near the technology services desk through February. Two display cases full of memorabilia, including actual Grammy Awards, are available for viewing.
The posters, statuettes and large wall photos make the connection between the Recording Academy, formerly the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and MTSU faculty and former students who have been acknowledged for their artistic and technical expertise in their professional lives.
Among the artists and technicians celebrated in the exhibit are former MTSU student Hilary Scott of the country trio Lady Antebellum, who created a scholarship for young women interested in the industry in 2015, and songwriter/producer Luke Laird, a 2001 graduate who was highlighted in a report by NBC Nightly News weekend anchor Kate Snow.
"A Legacy of Excellence: MTSU at the Grammys" is a collaboration by the James E. Walker Library, the College of Media and Entertainment and the Department of Recording Industry. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
