Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Arrives at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- Not long ago, it was announced that one of the attractions at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's new Women Who Rock exhibit would be Lady Gaga's famed meat dress, but the garment didn't actually arrive at the Hall in Cleveland until Thursday, according to MTV.

The meat dress, which Gaga wore to the MTV Video Music Awards last year, will join her childhood piano, song lyrics and other memorabilia in the exhibit, where it will be on display until February of 2012.

Jim Henke, the chief curator of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, spoke to MTV about the precautions the museum is taking to keep the dress from rotting while it's on display.

"It's going to be in a case, and we are putting some canisters in there to control the humidity," he explained.  He added that they have a canister in the case that "soaks up glutens," as well as "gels to control the environment."  The dress has also been treated with a special chemical solution.

FPG/Hulton Archive/Getty Images(CLEVELAND, Ohio) -- A brand-new exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio features what the website calls "the most comprehensive collection" of items and artifacts from The Beatles.

The exhibit includes a total of 70 treasures, ranging from Paul McCartney's handwritten arrangement for the song "Birthday" to an acoustic guitar John Lennon used to write "Norwegian Wood."

Jim Henke, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame museum's vice president of exhibitions, said that due to relations with Yoko Ono, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison's estate, they were able to build what he calls an "absolutely incredible collection."

Female Musicians Being Featured in Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Exhibit

Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic(CLEVELAND, Ohio) -- Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, Gwen Stefani and Alicia Keys aren't in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame -- yet -- but they're all featured in a brand-new exhibit opening Friday at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio.

Called Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion & Power, the exhibit traces the influence of women in rock and its related genres over nearly 100 years.  Organized by era, it highlights the female blues singers and country artists of the 1920s, the early female rock 'n rollers of the fifties, the girl groups, rock icons and singer-songwriters of the sixties, the disco and punk queens of the seventies, the music video stars of the '80s, the teen idols of the '90s and the massive pop stars of today.

Jim Henke, the chief curator of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, told ABC News Radio, "I think when people think back, they always think of the men in rock and roll, but the reality was that, going back to the roots, women have played an important role, and we really wanted to show that."
