Jay-Z's temporary, multimedia exhibition, The Book of Hov, opens today (July 14) at the Brooklyn Public Library.

According to a statement on the exhibition’s website, the exhibition explores Jay's impact as a musician, philanthropist, innovator, and entrepreneur through “thousands of archived objects, including original recording masters, never-before-seen photos, iconic stage wear, prestigious awards and recognitions, as well as videos and artifacts from every facet on Jay-Z’s professional life.”

"Our goal, with The Book of HOV tribute exhibition, is to provide a behind-the-scenes look at a Hall of Fame songwriter and performer, successful business person, and a consequential philanthropist who has never forgotten the lessons he learned on the road to success. And the borough where his journey began," the statement reads.

Earlier this week, the Brooklyn Public library printed Jay's lyrics larger-than-life across the front of their building. Last night (July 13), Jay celebrated the exhibition alongside his wife Beyoncé, daughter Blue Ivy, and Hip-Hop stars including Rakim, DJ Khaled, Angie Martinez, and more.
