Uptown Bounce: THE REMIX
Wednesday, August 13 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm
Join the City Museum and El Museo del Barrio for THE REMIX—the finale of our summer series—featuring music, gallery talks, art workshops, breakdancing, summer drinks, and local food. At the City Museum, join DJ Grand Master Caz on the terrace to sample classic hip hop beats and today’s freshest tracks, while dancer Kelly Peters—the “Master of Musicality”—electrifies the dance floor. At El Museo del Barrio, join us for an 80th birthday celebration of founder Raphael Montañez Ortiz, as he speaks about the beginnings of El Museo with Chon Noriega, Director of Chicano Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. Afterwards, stick around and take your turn smashing a piñata commissioned from artist Melissa Calderon.
