When did you fall in love with hip hop?

Grand Closing Friday, November 17th

“As we proceed” to celebrate fifty years of hip hop, we’re definitely “giving you what you need,” with the exhibit “I Got Five-Oh On It”–curated by DUPP&SWAT. This multidisciplinary body of work, salutes “Old School” and “New School,” dips in and out of coasts–be it East or West–spends time in the “Dirty South” and traverses regions. Paying tribute to ALL the elements and pillars of Hip Hop, this exhibit welcomes your interaction, engagement and your humble opinion on “Top 5’s” cuz’ you know “it don’t stop!!”  
In the words of BOOSIE, we ‘bout to set it off!!’

Theme: Celebrate, educate, agitate!
