Legends of Motown: Celebrating The Supremes

  • Exhibit Available

Legends of Motown: Celebrating The Supremes gives visitors a one-of-a-kind look at the life and career of one of the most successful American singing groups of the '60s, The Supremes.

The exhibit begins at the start of The Supremes' career, when they were still known as The Primettes, to their signing with Motown and takes visitors on a timeline tour of the height of their success — from setting a record for the most consecutive No. 1 hits by an American group in June 1965, to creating a legacy that still exists today through their music and "Supreme" style.

Unlike previous Supremes exhibitions, our exhibit is not exclusively a gown collection. This exhibit is the start of a series of exhibits celebrating Motown's musical and cultural impact.

The exhibit features rare items from the personal collection of founding Supremes member, Mary Wilson, including
