Legendary Wu-Tang Clan producer The RZA recently made a nice gesture when he donated the keyboard used to create the Wu's classic LP, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) to a music exhibit known as "Island Sounds: A 500 Year Music Mash-Up."
Not only will the exhibit feature the aforementioned keyboard, but also other memorabilia from one of the producer's pilgrimages to the Shaolin Temple in China.
The exhibit will be held on Staten Island at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden. Snug Harbor President and CEO Lynn Kelly says:
"We are excited and pleased to present this unique exhibit as a tribute to the countless artists who have played a role in Staten Island's rich and varied musical history. The exhibit memorializes the contributions of these artists and defines the part they played and continue to play in our diversified culture. I urge everyone with an interest in music, pop culture and the history of Staten Island to come and enjoy the hundreds of unique pieces of memorabilia that make up the Island Sounds exhibition."
The exhibit will be open for 18 months, beginning on May 11th at the Main Hall of the Snug Harbor campus. After that, it will be open Wednesday-Sunday, from noon to 5 pm.
