The Motown Museum announced on Sunday that they are moving into the next phase of its expansion to the museum. The museum shared some updated renderings of what they hope the community centered outdoor plaza will look like. The outdoor plaza will serve as a multipurpose gathering place for the community. Their hopes are that it will be one of their main attractions as they look to bring more visitors to the iconic museum. They also hope that it will be a place for local talent to perform as well as bring more unique opportunities for up and coming entrepreneurs all over metro Detroit.
Motown Museum Chairwoman and CEO Robin Terry, said that, “The plaza is such an important part of our expansion project. The last year has proven just how important these outdoor spaces are to thriving communities, and we are thrilled to create something that has been much needed in our city. The new Motown Museum plaza will be a place where residents and tourists from around the globe can come to bask in Motown music, be entertained by pop-up performances and connect with other Motown fans on the very grounds where the Motown Sound was born and music history was made.”
Motown is home for many legendary artists such as Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, the Supremes, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and of course Michael Jackson. The museum is hoping to leave a lasting impression for all visitors who step foot in it. Detroit, are you looking forward to the renovations that are being made to The Motown Museum?
