Northwest African American Museum presents Bold As Love: Jimi Hendrix at Home, defining his Seattle roots

BOLD AS LOVE:
JIMI HENDRIX AT HOME
NORTHWEST AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM
November 27-May 5


The Northwest African American Museum (NAAM), in partnership with Experience Hendrix L.L.C.. and Authentic Hendrix LLC, is proud to introduce their newest exhibition, celebrating Seattle's own Jimi Hendrix. The much-anticipated exhibit, Bold As Love: Jimi Hendrix at Home, opens to the public on Jimi's 76th birthday, November 27.

The work offers a rare and detailed look at Jimi's Seattle origins through the lens of those closest to him and by his own artistic eyes. Through archival and family photos, his own artwork, personal artifacts, music, and multimedia, visitors will discover how the icon's Seattle upbringing shaped his life and career. The collection of art and visual effects is being billed as more than an exhibition, but an experience that will take museum guests on a journey into the life of James Marshall 'Jimi' Hendrix, whose rise to stardom was meteoric, but whose feet never left the ground.

'We want people to come away feeling like they know Jimi on a different level. He was a complex and beautiful human being. His music was just a part of who he was,' explains Janie Hendrix, President & CEO of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. and Authentic Hendrix, LLC. 'Bold As Love: Jimi Hendrix at Home is our way of showing some of the many facets of Jimi at various stages of his life, not just on stage. This exhibit reveals Jimi the man, not only as a performer.'

The world recognizes Jimi Hendrix as an unequivocally gifted rock star who changed the world of music forever. He transformed the electric guitar into an instrument the world would embrace, raising the standards of rock music and making it more of an art form. He continues to have international appeal, but few recognize his humble beginnings here in Seattle. The exhibit opens the door to his home.

Growing up primarily in Seattle's Central District, Jimi's exposure to music began at an early age and was cultivated by his father, James 'Al' Hendrix. Jimi's infatuation with the guitar started with a broom, as observed by his dad. He then graduated to a one-string ukulele, and finally a guitar. Never formally trained, Jimi was a self-taught musician, listening intently the sounds of blues and jazz at home. His unique style of dress, later displayed in life, was also part of his family's legacy. His colorful costumes paid homage to his grandmother's vaudevillian roots, as did his stunning theatrical performances. Each a vestige of home. His musical genius, personified by his free spirit and self-awareness, would ultimately make Seattle proud, and the universe his friend.

'The Northwest African American Museum (NAAM) is delighted to partner with Experience Hendrix L.L.C. and Authentic Hendrix LLC on this profoundly important exhibition that explores the life and musical genius of Jimi Hendrix from the perspective of his Seattle roots,' said LaNesha DeBardelaben, Executive Director at NAAM. 'His brilliance and legacy inspire us because he's one of us. This is a unique opportunity to see Seattle through his eyes and what he cherished. Young or old, there is something for everyone to learn and discover in this exhibition.'

Bold As Love: Jimi Hendrix at Home will run November 27 through May 5 at the Northwest African American Museum (2300 S. Massachusetts St., Seattle, WA 98144). Entrance to the museum and the grand opening event is free and open to the public on November 27. It will include a birthday celebration and music, and to commemorate the opening, the first 76 people to sign up for a new NAAM membership, will receive a curated gift from Experience Hendrix and NAAM.

About Northwest African American Museum
NAAM's mission is to spread knowledge, understanding, and enjoyment of the histories, arts and cultures of people of African descent for the enrichment of all. We envision a Pacific Northwest region where the important histories, arts, and cultures of people of African descent are embraced as an essential part of our shared heritage and future. At the heart of the African American experience in the Northwest is the story of our journey to this region, the establishment of our vibrant community, and the ways in which we have survived.
