Hip to urban art

ArtsWestchester takes to the street for two days of events on spoken word performances, hip hop dances and discussions on the evolution of graffiti.

In conjunction with “From the Streets: An Exhibition of Urban Art,” ArtsWestchester is hosting two cultural programs.

Friday, June 16 at 7 p.m., it’s “Stories and Sounds From Back in the Day with Pioneers Grandmaster Caz and Grand Wizzard Theodore.” It’s a night of performance and storytelling with songwriter, MC, and DJ Curtis “Grandmaster Caz” Brown, an icon of early hip-hop as a member of the Cold Crush Brothers. Caz will be accompanied by Grand Wizzard Theodore, the DJ credited with the “scratching” technique. Then at 4 p.m. Saturday, June 17, it’s “The Sisterhood of Hip-Hop.” This event features a lesson in party dances from “back in the day” lead by Deena Clemente and a panel discussion with graffiti artists and b-girls, followed by a DJ and dance performance. Participants include DJ Perly, Ephrat, Erotica 67, Karen “KayLove” Pedrosa and Peaches Rodriguez.
