Motown: The Sound of Young America

Every day, through Mar 26
Oregon Historical Society Southwest Portland (Portland)
This is an in-person event
$0 - $10
The Beatles and their British Invasion ilk weren't the only musicians occupying the airwaves in the late '50s. Starting out in Detroit, Motown was an infectious blend of gospel, blues, and pop that reshaped American sound. Led by former prizefighter Berry Gordy, Jr., Motown hit the mainstream with acts like the Supremes, the Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, and others—learn more about it at this exhibition, where you'll find stage costumes, instruments, and interactive displays. (If Motown is your thing, you might dig this doo wop-themed variety show, too.)
