Bob Marley‘s multi-room exhibit “One Love Experience” is set to make its U.S. debut on January 27 at Ovation Hollywood in Los Angeles.
The exhibit, spread over a 15,000 square feet, will feature previously unseen photographs, concert videos, lyric sheets, rare memorabilia like guitars, a soccer jersey, sneakers and some artworks highlighting Marley’s influence.
A jukebox, a Marley-branded pinball machine, and some foosball tables will also be at the exhibition. There will also be a space allotted exclusively to celebrate the legacy of the icon’s family.
A 2,000-square foot One Love Forest inside the venue will take visitors on a trip to Jamaica in a multi-sensory environment, which also features a cannabis garden.
The Jamaica-born Marley rose to global stardom in the 1970s, riding on the success of songs like “No Woman, No Cry,” “Get UP, Stand Up,” and “I Shot the Sheriff.”
Marley’s lyrics promoting social justice and African unity made him an icon in Jamaica and other countries. He died from cancer in 1981 at age 36.
“After being in London and Toronto, it’s going to be amazing bringing the experience here to the U.S. for the first time and just steps from Daddy’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Cedella Marley, CEO of Bob Marley Group, said in a statement.
The exhibit is produced by the Marley Family and Terrapin Station Entertainment.
