Grafitti Artists and Hip Hop Featured at Lichtenstein

Curated by Andres Ramirez of The Funk Box Dance Studio, the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts will be hosting regional graffiti artists as part of the Funkdation Hip Hop Art Festival.

The exhibit will open during First Fridays Artswalk on April 7th from 5 to 8 pm with live performances from the Funk Box Dance Studio.

The artists featured during the exhibit include:  Matthew Charette; Kamsy Duarte; Mitchell Hamilton; Kenneth Rivera and Robert Trzcinka.

Live performances and an artists’ reception will be part of the Funkdation Festival on Saturday April 29th.  This festival will highlight the positive outlook that Hip Hop has for the community.  Displaying all 4 elements of Hip Hop (MCing, DJing, Breaking and Graffiti) we will be having great performances by Nostalgia, a local group of MCs that have opened for several rappers like Biz Markie.  You can find their music on Spotify, iTunes and google play. The Funk Box Studio kids will also be performing.
