Director of Exhibitions Jeffrey Bruce says Macon is known for its history of music.

"When you talk about Macon, Macon's identity is tied up in its history with music. Macon is a music city -- we say "Macon is where soul is," and that's tied to the story of these great artists that came out of this community," said bruce.

Bruce says the exhibit will be at the museum for the foreseeable future.
