The exhibition explores the GRAMMY-nominated artist’s songwriting talent and celebrates Shakur’s legacy as a magnetic performer, charismatic actor, heartfelt poet and outspoken social activist.
“Tupac Shakur was one of the most original and important of all hip hop artists. His writings are both powerful and provocative,” said Bob Santelli, Executive Director of the GRAMMY Museum. “It is an honor to be the first music museum to acknowledge Tupac's legacy and to bring context to what was an incredible career."
All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur showcases the rapper’s love of words and his talent as a gifted communicator through handwritten lyrics and poems. The exhibit also features artifacts from his career breakthrough with hip-hop group, Digital Underground and his rise to fame as a solo artist.

It’s one of our oldest Cinefamily traditions, having lasted since our very beginnings. And it’s been damned fun, too, every time. Summer’s around the corner, and you know how we here at the theater love two things in tandem: busting out the patio grill, and The Five Minutes Game. What’s all this about a game, you ask? We’re firm believers in “Every movie is interesting for at least its first five minutes”, those fascinating moments when you’re still entering the new world a film presents you, and trying to figure out what the hell’s going on. What we’re gonna do is choose fifteen movies you’ve likely never seen before (with most of them still unavailable on DVD), line ‘em up and only show you the first five minutes of each, not counting their opening credits. After all that, you, the audience, votes on which film out of the fifteen we all then peep in its entirety. So bring something to cook on our grill and let’s get started!
