Billy Joel is among the most famous American singer-songwriters of all time. Born in New York and raised in Long Island, the hometown of the “Piano Man” is paying tribute to his life and artistry with a new exhibition at the Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame.

Entitled My Life: A Piano Man’s Journey, the exhibit compiles five decades of Joel memorabilia, many pieces of which were donated by the artist himself from his collection and haven’t been seen by the public before. Among the memorabilia are instruments, awards and photographs, along with audio and video recordings.

The exhibit promises that viewers will be able to “experience Billy Joel’s life spanning career,” touching on his evolution and musical output over multiple decades, as well as his personal life. My Life: A Piano Man’s Journey was designed by Kevin O’Callaghan, who also designed the Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame.

“It was a thrill to see a long line of eager fans at our opening,” LIMEHOF Chairman Ernie Canadeo said. “Over 500 fans of all ages, many from out of state, enjoyed the exhibit this past weekend, from families with young children to middle-aged and older adults. The smiles on everyone’s faces after they experienced the exhibit and the Hall of Fame were priceless. Billy Joel truly touches people of all ages, and this exhibit is a testament to his legacy as Long Island’s favorite entertainer.”

Fans of Joel can visit the exhibit in person Wednesday through Sunday at the LIMEHOF. Tickets are available online and in person.
