Pillars in The Public

Friday, April 5, 2019

It’s a back-to-school special on the Buffalo State Campus this Saturday as the Front Yard of the Burchfield Penney Art Center facing Elmwood Avenue becomes the front door for students and the public alike to get their feet in the lobby of Buffalo’s hip hop scene. Fronted by rappers and DJs like DJ Toneyboi, Billie Essco, Chill Ali, Lelton BagelJesus Marsh, Solomon Dixon, DJ Milk, and dev11n, there’ll also be poetry, dance, and live painting from the later afternoon into the dark hours. The first of a series of three events called Pillarsput on by Rise Collaborative partneringwith the Buffalo rap scenemakers Anti-Venue Tour (who will follow with an event the next weekend), it’s a great chance for students and the public alike to mingle, relax, and kick back on those summer forever vibes. The show is free, so come early and bring a few extra bucks for admission to the museum and check out the gallery’s 10-year retrospective, a trove of local art-making over a vibrant decade.
