Here comes the Missy Elliott pop-up museum to delight fans with the ultimate interactive experience. In advance of Monday’s Video Music Awards (VMAs), Pepsi and MTV are presenting a weekend-long experiential “Pop-Up Museum of Missy Elliott.” The weekend events are in celebration of the VMAs and its Honoree — Missy Elliott — who will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
The museum will highlight the Grammy Award-winning rapper’s genius artistic fashion stylings and her famed iconic music videos, plus pay homage to some of the artist’s most creative visionaries. Those visionaries include: June Ambrose, Hype Williams, Dave Myers, HiHat, Billy B and Gloria Elias-Foeillet.
The Museum of Missy Elliott will be a ticketed event, located at 632 Broadway in NYC. Opening Saturday, August 24th from 11am-7pm and ending Sunday, August 25th 11am-6pm. According to Page Six, tickets for the 2-day event was so sought after, it sold out in 60 seconds.
