Pharrell's Grammys Hat to Display in D.C. Museum
The hat is here to stay
Just when you think you've heard the last of Pharrell Williams' famous Grammys hat, it rears its, uh, brim once again. This time, the high-crowned topper is making its return with a temporary exhibition at Washington, D.C.'s Newseum.
Fast food chain Arby's — the restaurant that purchased the Vivienne Westwood-designed piece in March — is lending the meme-worthy hat to the D.C. museum for limited display from Aug. 22 to Oct. 26, according to the Washington Post. Arby's announced the news Tuesday morning on Twitter with an accompanying Vine video.
After making its debut at this year's Grammys, a parody Twitter account was generated for Pharrell's hat with the Grammy Award-winning artist taking part in the joke and engaging in entertaining tweet exchanges with Arby's. When Pharrell decided to put his signature headgear up for auction to benefit his educational nonprofit organization, From One Hand to Another, the fast food restaurant took part and won with a $44,100 bid/donation.
Now, we'll get to see the hat in all its glory. Thanks Arby's.
