Marcus and Yolanda Glenn arrived in Los Angeles Thursday to ready themselves for the upcoming events relating to Sunday’s 56th Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center.

Marcus Glenn – whose work is often infused with musical themes – was chosen to create the official artwork for this year’s award show.

The pair took a stroll by the Grammy Museum, reading the names of the great musicians honored along the sidewalk in front of the museum – many of whom have provided Marcus inspiration in his work.

Marcus spotted his work on the Grammy Awards’ poster outside the museum. The artwork – “One Nite Outta This World” – is featured on posters, tickets, T-shirts and other official print materials associated with music’s biggest night.

Friday for Marcus started with an interview with Paul W. Smith on WJR radio, and a feature story by Kathryn Larson for WWJ CBS Detroit.

Marcus made a one-of-a-kind purse for Yolanda to carry to the MusiCares event and another that she’ll hold as the pair make their way down the red carpet on Sunday.

    Love the poster and just recently purchased a couple of Marcus art works. One of them is Three Fellas and a Lady like on Yolandas purse. Enjoyed meeting those two at the Galveston, TX VIP Auction. Great people and one talented artist!

    I bought a Marcus Glen print 8 yrs. ago called The Jazzinator”.It is my favorite piece of artwork and hangs in my den.Dozens of people have asked about it.It seems to interest people who are not normally art lovers. It seems to have a certain magic about it.
