Graffiti in the Garden

May 8, 3 pm.


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

This event will take place in person at 67th Street Library and will be held outside on the backyard patio as weather permits. In case of rain, the program will take place inside. 

Join our teen community as we explore and experiment with one of New York City’s most popular art forms- Graffiti! Each week we will supply a huge array of art materials including super chunky markers, sprayable chalk paint, and stencils to make our own tags, decorate the patio, and learn the rich history and techniques of this unique urban art form. 

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 partnership was made possible in part by the Institution of Museum and Library Services.
