“Sinatra: An American Icon” exhibition coming to HistoryMiami Museum, March 4-June 4

By Matt Micucci


The official exhibit of the Frank Sinatra centennial, titled “Sinatra: An American Icon,” traces 100 years of Sinatra’s legacy, from his birth in Hoboken, New Jersey, to super-stardom, by way of his Hollywood success, his personal life and his humanitarian work.


This multimedia exhibition tells Sinatra’s life story through his items of clothing, his original artworks, his golf clubs, his numerous awards, archival video, original audio from studio sessions, family photos and behind-the-scene images, along with classic shots by photographer Herman Leonard.


Following its stops at the New York Public Library and the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles, the exhibit will be hosted in Miami at the HistoryMiami Museum from March 4 to June 4. During its Miami run, the museum will also present a special section highlighting Sinatra’s connections to the South Florida region. The section will display concert programs from his many performances at clubs in Miami, movie and television memorabilia from productions he shot in the region along with various other items.


Bob Santelli, executive director of the Grammy Museum, curated “Sinatra: An American Icon” by working together with the Sinatra family. By doing so, he said “We were able to provide a glimpse of what it was to know the man behind The Voice.”


HistoryMiami Museum will be hosting a Grand Opening Party on March 3. For more information, go to http://www.historymiami.org/museum/exhibitions/details/sinatra/
