50th Anniversary of Hip Hop: Hip-Hop Art Mural

May 1, 3:30 pm.

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop at The New York Public Library!

Throughout 2023, NYC’s public libraries will be celebrating 50 years since the creation of hip-hop with a robust slate of programs throughout the spring and summer. Working together with Queens Public Library and the Brooklyn Public Library, NYPL is focusing on hip hop’s origins within New York City and its rich legacy of art, culture, and music that spreads across the nation and around the world.

This event will take place in person at Columbus Library. 

 Learn about the history of Hip-Hop while designing a timeline mural for Columbus Library’s staircase. Come and express your creative ability, while learning about the origins of hip hop.

Registration is recommended but appreciated.
