Bulova Corporation and The GRAMMY Museum® at L.A. LIVE Announce Partnership To Celebrate the Legacy of Music

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

New York, NY, and Los Angeles, Calif. (December 6, 2016) – Bulova Corporation and the GRAMMY Museum® at L.A. LIVE are partnering in a multi-year agreement to celebrate the legacy of music, the technology of the recording process and the recognition of music accomplishment. As a part of the partnership, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships, Bulova will serve as the official timepiece of the GRAMMY Museum.

 

Making its debut in December 2008 in downtown Los Angeles, in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the GRAMMY Awards®, the GRAMMY Museum is a 30,000 square-foot museum with interactive, permanent and traveling exhibits. Established to explore and celebrate the legacies of all forms of music, the GRAMMY Museum partners with Bulova to reinforce the value in preserving music’s legacy, while recognizing the art and technology of the recording process and the history of the GRAMMY Awards.

 

“The GRAMMY Museum is an amazing institution and does beautiful work to further both the GRAMMY® legacy and music education and culture,” said Jeffrey Cohen, President of Bulova.

 

“We are thrilled to be partnered with such an impressive and respected watch brand as Bulova,” said Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum at L.A. LIVE. “As our first official timepiece sponsor, Bulova will help us to further our mission of bringing music education programs to the underserved youth of Los Angeles and beyond.”

Bulova, America’s premier watch brand with 141 years of history has always had a direct correlation with the world of music having aired the first ever national radio commercial in 1926 and launching the first clock radio to the market in 1928.

 

The agreement, the first timepiece partnership for the museum, will leverage the GRAMMY Museum’s four floors of dynamic and stimulating exhibit space as well as its thought-provoking educational and public programs featuring films, workshops, and intimate conversations and performances with award-winning and up-and-coming artists.

 

Bulova-branded clocks will be implemented across the digital and physical space of the GRAMMY Museum including in its 200-seat state-of-the-art Clive Davis Theater. In addition, Bulova will have the option to sponsor one of the GRAMMY Museum’s upcoming exhibits along with the opportunity to present Bulova timepieces to visiting artists. Visitors to the GRAMMY Museum, in-person and online, will also be able to purchase Bulova watches.
