Postmark celebrates Grammy Museum grand opening

February 25, 2016 07:37 AM

  • The grand opening of the Grammy Museum at Delta State University in Cleveland, Miss., is commemorated on a March 5 pictorial postmark.

By Michael Baadke

March 5 was the grand opening date for the Grammy Museum at Delta State University in Cleveland, Miss.

The 27,000-square-foot facility is being described as the world’s most technologically advanced music museum.

“With the Grammy Museum’s University Affiliate program, we’re inviting educational institutions to engage in a unique resource-sharing opportunity,” said Bob Santelli, executive director of the Grammy Museum.

“Delta State’s designation as an official Grammy Museum affiliate is even more special due to the fact that the Grammy Museum will be opening our first-ever satellite location on Delta State’s campus in 2016.”
