COMMUNITY GALLERY

1520 South Harper Court

The purpose of the “Permanent Record: Chicago Hip Hop Kulture” show is to spread knowledge of the elements of Hip Hop. Using knowledge, the unspoken 5th element of hip-hop, we will inform the public about the key pioneers and innovators that started the movement in Chicago, and how they influenced later generations. Additionally, this gallery show seeks to give Hip Hop the status and recognition it deserves as a culture, from it’s history and art.

Through weekend programming, “Permanent Record” will allow the public to learn about each element of Hip Hop individually. All four components, rapping, DJing, graffiti, and b-boying will be featured in the show through art, pictures, interviews, clothing, posters, and music of the ‘90s. All three days will be free. We will also be showing the movie “Shake the Dust”, produced by Nas, at Harper Theatre.
