Beatz in the Barrio

Hip Hop in the Latino Community
A Galería de la Rosa Exhibit
by Michael Cruz Flores & Eric Villarreal

Opening Night Reception Friday May 13th
6:00 - 9:00 pm
The Exhibit will continue through June 18th

Artes de la Rosa’s Gallery (Galería de la Rosa) is pleased to present Beatz in the Barrio: The Hip Hop Culture in the Latino Community. The exhibit is curated by Artistic Director Adam Adolfo and features artists Michael Cruz Flores and Eric Villarreal. Eric’s work was featured in 2015’s Oscuro: Myths and Monsters of Latino América and before that 2012’s Cuentos de la Ciudad. Michael Cruz Flores most recently exhibited in Galeria de la Rosa with his 2015 exhibit, Truly Yours…Revamped.

Curated by Artes de la Rosa Artistic Director Adam Adolfo, Beatz in the Barrio explores the rich, vibarant, and diverse world of the hip hop culture and the Latino community’s special place within it. The Hip hop movement formed during the early 1970s by African-American, Caribbean, and Latino youths residing in the South Bronx in New York City. It became popular outside of the African-American community in the late 1980s and by the 2000s became the most listened-to musical genre in the world. It is characterized by four distinct elements, all of which represent the different manifestations of the culture: rap (oral), DJing (aural), break dancing (physical) and graffiti art (visual).

The exhibit is a companion piece to the Artes de la Rosa Regional Premiere stage production Welcome to Arroyo’s, opening May 21st. “I’m always conscious of how our artistic endeavors can cross pollinate audiences and cross promote our diverse programming,” offers Adolfo. “As a huge fan of these two phenomenal artists I thought they would not only complement each other’s aesthetic but would bring a lot to the table as we explore what his hop is to us in our community.” The sibling programs have earned the social media moniker #HipHopToMe.

The public is invited to an opening reception for the artist on Friday May 13 from 6 to 9 pm. Join us and meet the artists.
