Hip-Hop Education Center (HHEC) and High School of Art and Design (HSAD) will spotlight the next generation of young professionals through Apple’s Today at Apple program. The rising artists from HSAD reimagine the Wild Style in honor of the iconic film’s 40th anniversary.
Students will present their designs to a panel of special guests including graffiti legends and HSAD alumni Lady Pink and Carlos Mare, and will share how they used iPad and Apple Pencil to create their own remix of art and culture. There will also be a special performance by music and multimedia duo, Soul Science Lab.
“The young professionals at Art and Design have been given a fabulous opportunity to connect their technical skills and creativity with a legacy of Hip-Hop culture that has deep roots at A&D. We’re thrilled that our partners at HHEC and Apple have created space to iterate on Wild Style’s art among the progenitors of the most influential cultural medium in the world,” said Maximillian Re-Sugiura, Principal, High School of Art and Design.
