Frank Gehry Designs Official Artwork for the Grammy Awards

Every now and again, be it ceramics exhibitions or legally contentious jewelry designs, Frank Gehry branches out into creative outlets other than architecture. He’s soon to be doing it again, as the Grammy Awards have just announced that Gehry will be creating the official artwork for the event. The main image features the Grammy’s gramophone logo surrounded by a handful of models for Gehry-esque buildings and will be used on the program book, tickets, and the posters for the awards show. We’re not entirely sure what his architecture and a music awards show have to do with one another, but there it is. And here’s a bit from the press announcement:

“We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with world-renowned architect Frank Gehry on our official artwork for the GRAMMY Awards and the opportunity to further The Academy’s dedication to celebrating the arts in every discipline,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “Frank’s exemplary creative accomplishments through a variety of artistic platforms have been inspirational. We are honored to work with such a well-respected talent who has served as an influential figure within the arts on a global scale.”
