Hip Hop Comes To The Los Angeles County Museum of Art in May

Next month, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) will kick off its first-ever hip-hop concert series titled "Through The Mic." The concert series will explore contemporary Los Angeles hip hop, with an emphasis on the diversity of L.A.-based artists. It will provide a platform for aspiring hip-hop artists to have their work heard on a larger scale. "Through The Mic" will be co-curated by LACMA and underground rap legend Murs, who's co-founder of the annual independent hip-hop festival Paid Dues.

The concert series will run from May 17 through October 18, and will take place on the third Thursday of every month.  It will feature emerging and experimental L.A.-based hip-hop artists chosen by Murs himself. "Through The Mic," will make its debut on May 17 with a special performance by rap group 3MG, formerly known as 3 Melancholy Gypsys. The group is comprised of Murs, Elich and Scarub. And in June, Korean American underground rapper Dumbfounded will be the featured artist. To learn more about "Through The Mic," go to LACMA's website.

Good details and contrast between dark shadows and white areas. You may know the work of the Greek-Italian surrealist artist Giorgio de Chirico, much of whose work you can browse at This one,, has the same feel as your drawings. ctimeas
