The Experience Music Project in Seattle will be the home to the biggest and most complete exhibit ever dedicated to Nirvana and the grunge scene when "Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses" opens at the EMP on April 16th, 2011. The exhibit, which EMP began gathering material for 15 years ago, will house over 200 Nirvana artifacts and countless never-before-seen photographs of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl provided by those who were a part of the Nirvana legend. "For me it was this perfect yin and yang situation," EMP curator Jacob McMurray tells Rolling Stone. "I could show that epic myth-making side of Nirvana and also show this very intimate story about this band of guys that just wanted to rock who had really no aspirations that it would go anywhere, but it happened to go somewhere huge."
