Following its original run at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland in 2014, an expanded version of the exhibit "Paul Simon: Words & Music" opens at the Skirball Cultural Center. Organized into themed sections, the display spotlights the singer, songwriter, musician and two-time Hall of Famer's life and music, especially his partnership with Art Garfunkel in the 1950s and '60s and solo career, beginning in 1971, which produced the mega-selling 1986 album Graceland. Highlights include photographs, instruments, awards and costumes, as well as handwritten lyrics to "Mrs. Robinson," "Mother and Child Reunion" and "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" and music sheets for "Bridge Over Troubled Water." The exhibit also offers an interactive music lab, featuring a communal drum circle and mixing equipment.
