Volunteer for "Close to the Edge: The Birth of Hip Hop Architecture"
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the exhibit “Close to the Edge: The Birth of Hip Hop Architecture.” The exhibit is curated by Sekou Cooke, professor of architecture at Syracuse University, and spotlights local architect James Garrett, Jr., AIA and the firm 4RM+ULA’s work. Hip Hop Architecture is a theoretical movement reflecting the core tenets of hip-hop culture with the power to create meaningful impact on the built environment and give voice to the marginalized and underrepresented within design practice. This exhibit premiered at the Center for Architecture in New York, NY. The exhibit will be displayed at the old Saxon Ford building, 262 University Avenue West, St. Paul, which will be the new home of Springboard for the Arts (“SpringBOX”).
