Gallery Talk: Art and Hip-Hop



Admission actions

  • Free with museum admission

How can a rap lyric inform how one sees a painting? Can artworks encourage empathy with the myths and sometimes brutal realities described in hip-hop music? Educator Sam Anderson-Ramos guides this participatory conversation to uncover how themes explored in the quintessentially American music genre of hip-hop are echoed in works in the museum’s collection.
