Hip Hop History: Highlights from the Paradise Collection
Through March 5, 2011

Closing Reception - March 3, 2011, 5:30 to 7 pm
This will be a special offCenter program with local hip hop musicians selected by Paradise and The Center.

Paradise Gray was an active participant in the hip hop community, living in New York , from it's humble beginnings in the South Bronx. This presentation is a snapshot from his perspective and collection. New York is the epicenter of hip hop with its founding fathers the pioneering deejays Afrika Bambaataa, Kool Herc and Grand Master Flash. This archival collection of b-boy memorabilia celebrates hip hop's birth, a date widely accepted as November 12, 1974. Come celebrate Hip Hop History Month in our second floor regional gallery and adjacent studio at the August Wilson Center!
