RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom

Starting from its roots on the streets, before rap, DJing, graffiti, breakdancing, and street fashion launched into mainstream culture, RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom explores one of the most influential cultural and social movements of the last 50 years. 

Opening in OMCA’s Great Hall on March 24, 2018, RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom uncovers the under-recognized story of how Hip-Hop changed the world. Delving into the West Coast’s and San Francisco Bay Area’s influences, the exhibition features insights from artists and Hip-Hop luminaries about how Hip-Hop continues to provide a platform for creative self-expression, activism, youth development, and education. 

More details about the exhibition can be found in the press release
