MIX: Beat Street

Join us on December 1 at MIX: Beat Street to immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of hip-hop. This year marks 50 years since the birth of hip-hop, and the 1984 film Beat Street helped highlight and introduce the roles of the DJ, breakdancing, and graffiti in hip-hop culture to the masses. This evening features a stacked lineup of DJs, including DJ Kristyles, DJ Eso, DJ Chicago, DJ Yomi, DJ Chevi Red, DJ Corey Grand, and DJ Lily Jade, who will spin hip-hop classics as well as contemporary favorites. Throughout the evening, breakdancers will perform. Food and drink items, including street-art-inspired baked goods, cocktails, beer, and wine, are available to purchase from Bon Appétit.

If guests need a break from dancing, they are invited to view the Cleveland Museum of Art’s two current special exhibitions, China’s Southern Paradise: Treasures from the Lower Yangzi Delta and Degas and the Laundress: Women, Work, and Impressionism.

We can’t wait to see you at this Friday-night extravaganza.
