The Man in Black: The Style of Johnny Cash, Curated by Manuel will open on February 26, 2018, and will showcase some of Johnny Cash‘s famous stage wear.

Manuel Cuevas, who helped Cash hone his signature all-black look, opened his own shop in 1975 after years of working for Los Angeles designer Nudie Cohn, known for his famously embellished “Nudie Suits.” In the exhibit, music fans can see Manuel’s original measurements, supplies and paperwork relating to Cash.

Manuel has dressed a wide variety of music artists over the years, including John Lennon, The Rolling Stones, Bob DylanElton John, The Bee Gees, Neil Young, The Jackson Five, Glen Campbell, The Osmonds, David Cassidy, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, David Lee Roth and Gram Parsons, among others.

The Man in Black: The Style of Johnny Cash, Curated by Manuel will remain open for 18 months.
