Beyond Bling: voices of Hip-Hop in Art
This exhibition brings together artists who, in the first decade of the 21st century, have provocatively incorporated signifiers of Hip-Hop/street culture into their work. It is an exhibition that incites further questions and expands our ideas of what it means to speak with a historically urban voice in this age of advanced globalization.
See this exhibition during regular Museum hours, 10 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Thursdays until 8 p.m.
This exhibition is included with regular Museum admission. Call 941.358.3180 for advance tickets.
