Frank Gehry Designs Poster for 2012 Grammy Awards

Undulating buildings surround the gilded gramophone

Here's a curious thing: Architect Frank Gehry has designed the promotional poster for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, coming up in February. Gehry isn't a musician, but he knows some people who are! "I have been fortunate to have worked with and become friends with some of the top musicians in classical music," Gehry says in the press release. "They are my inspiration and my heroes. I am pleased to work with the Grammys to help celebrate all of these talented people." The poster itself shows the gilded gramophone trophy surrounded by Gehry-designed model buildings. Neil Portnow, president and CEO of The Recording Academy, says: "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."
