Uptown Bounce: Night Two
Wednesday, July 29 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Join the City Museum and El Museo del Barrio for the second event in our Uptown Bounce summer series—featuring music, gallery talks, art workshops, breakdancing, summer drinks, and local food. At the City Museum, we present "The Birth of Hip-Hop" with legendary DJ Grandmaster Caz (whose portrait is featured in our Hip-Hop Revolution exhibition) and world-class b-boys tearing up the terrace. Kady Perry joins us for chalk art.

El Museo welcomes artists featured in their CUT N MIX: Contemporary Collage exhibit will be in Las Galerias discussing their work! Stick around for a special performance by a surprise guest. Video projections by Nat Castañeda. #artmaking #DJTurmix #Feegz
