“Artists Inspired by Music” coincides with Interscope’s 30th anniversary. The exhibit was spearheaded by label partner Justin Lubliner, who asked co-founder Jimmy Iovine, current chairman John Janick, vice chairman Steve Berman and executive Josh Abraham to revisit the history of the label through the lens of visual art. The curator is the museum’s associate curator of decorative arts and design Staci Steinberger.
