PAST EVENTS

As a part of Wa Na Wari’s annual Walk the Block festival, ARTE NOIR celebrated the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop by amplifying its indelible impact on the arts. We showcased the works of five local artists (eBellz Arts, Momma Lips Draws, The Fly Blind Guy, M. Curry Designs and Kingspen) whose practices have been influenced by Hip-Hop culture. We also featured live graffiti painting by Wolfdelux and interactive art activities with Kay the Paint Lady; a breakdance performance and demo from Massive Monkees, jump rope with Double Dutch Divas, and New Orleans-style Twerkshop, all while DJ Yaddy set the vibe and musical backdrop for the afternoon.
