Come celebrate 50 years of Hip Hop at Hill-Stead Museum’s Gardens and Galleries: Hip Hop at 50. Together with The Amistad Center for Art & Culture, Hill-Stead is hosting a one-of-a-kind Hip Hop Festival in two installments, the first at the gardens of Hill-Stead on Sunday, October 1 and the second in the galleries of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art on Thursday, November 2.
Khaiim the RapOet, will be the lead artist at both events. The performers will draw from the nine elements of Hip Hop (dancing, rapping, street art, etc.), to celebrate this beloved genre. The festival in October will take place from 3 to 7 pm, bring a picnic dinner to watch the amazing performances, and also stroll the gorgeous Hill-Stead grounds with Hip Hop as your background music.
Want to get excited for the festival? Listen to the top 50 hip hop songs picked by Hip Hop legends and figures from various eras and regions, including a few non-artists, gathered by The Washington Post.
