Facilitated by Dr. Elliot Gann, aka Phillipdrummond of Today’s Future Sound, StreetBeats: An Exploration of Culture through Hip-Hop is an intergenerational activation exploring the many different ways to experience and engage with Hip Hop at the Village Artist Corner (aka the Art/Lit Living Innovation Zone) on the first Sundays of March, April and May 2018.
Curated by the Asian Art Museum and San Francisco Public Library, the Village Artist Corner, outside the Asian Art Museum on Fulton Street at Larkin Street, serves as a venue for art to inspire change through shared experiences through rotating murals and monthly participatory programming created by the Village Artist-in-Residence.
The March and April 1st Sunday StreetBeats Workshops brought members of the public together to learn from professionals instructors on the many ways Hip Hop has shaped culture – from mixing songs with Daryl Anthony Mc Gee, Ko Wong-Horiuchi, Mike Maitre’d Cochran aka Maitre D , dance like a b-boy or b-girl with Rahman Jamaal Mc, listen to original beat sets from Knxout, Phillipdrummond aka Philthydrummond aka Pd, and Aye, Yu of The Soul Dojo, and practice how to put together freestyles on the fly with with Marlon Richardson.
Join the Asian Art Museum and StreetBeats at their last of 3 installments of this activation on Sunday May 6th from 11am – 2pm at the Village Artist Corner!
