3 new exhibits opening at Elvis' Graceland

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Elvis Presley Enterprises says three new exhibits will open next year at Graceland in Memphis to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Elvis' death.

Opening Feb. 1, the "Elvis.Through His Daughter's Eyes" exhibit will highlight Elvis' relationship with his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. It includes family photos and home movies that show her growing up at Graceland.

The third exhibit, opening March 1, is called "Icon: The Influence of Elvis Presley." It features clothing, musical instruments and other items used by performers who were influenced by Elvis.

Elvis died on Aug. 16, 1977.
