Hip Hop Heroes: Create a Comic Book Cover
Celebrate the 50th anniversary of hip hop with Yonkers-based artist Evan Bishop, who returns to the Museum to lead his popular workshop, Hip Hop Heroes: Create a Comic Book Cover. This workshop is designed for audiences of all abilities, ages, and skill levels. Learn about the history of the genre and its impact on global pop culture. Then, create a nonviolent superhero in your own image and produce an original comic book cover, from the drawing to the lettering.
Participants will have the opportunity to have their comic book covers considered for inclusion in the upcoming exhibit, Hip Hop Heroes, which will open in our Community & Partnership Gallery in November.
The workshop takes place during Feel Good Fridays on Friday, August 11, alongside the musical stylings of Yonkers native Darrel “DJ Jericko” Morrison, who traces the hip hop genre from its inception in the Bronx on this date in 1973 to today. With free general admission from 5–7pm, experience the exhibitions currently on view, grab a drink, and enjoy the outdoor courtyard with games for all ages. Catch an out-of-this-world planetarium show, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, at 6pm (ticketed). Cash bar.
