A new Tom Petty exhibit is set to open in the singer’s hometown of Gainesville, Florida.

“Tom Petty: Among the Wildflowers” includes instruments, lyric sheets, and other artifacts from the making of Petty’s 1994 album Wildflowers.

Many of the artifacts were previously displayed at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Adria Petty, the eldest daughter of Tom Petty explained,

“The Petty Legacy is committed to investing in the new artists, creators, and inventors that will come out of Gainesville. The Cade Museum is a beacon for this. Our dad was such an unassuming and wonderful man like the late Dr. Cade I know he would be humbled by this honor. The legacy of the Cade Museum uplifts and facilitates this spirit of invention and discovery. We could not be more thrilled that this important exhibition will travel from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to our dad’s hometown in Central Florida. We hope it inspires people to dig deep, dream and express themselves. We are forever grateful to Phoebe Miles for making this exhibition possible.”

The exhibit will open at the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention on July 22nd.
