NMOH CORPORATE GRAFFITI INITIATIVE
The National Museum of Hip-Hop has, for many years, tried to bride the gap between Corporate Culture and Graffiti Art. From the bright lights of Broadway, New York City to the late-great 5Pointz Art Structure, NMoH has worked with some of the most talented graffiti artists from around the world throughout the years. Now, NMoH is introducing the Corporate Graffiti Initiative-aimed at bringing together the world's hottest artists and hippest companies; further legitimizing Graffiti as a true form of fine art.
In the summer of 2014, The National Museum was called upon to participate in a new play on Broadway that featured hit songs from the late/great Tupac Shakur. The NMoH was charged with creating and designing a world-class Hip-Hop Exhibition that could serve as a bonus for theater-goers before and after the show. The exhibition featured a 50 foot graffiti wall painted on by one of NMoH's top artists Dre Trenier.
NMOH WITH BLACK CAUCUS
In 2010, The National Museum of Hip-Hop partnered with the Nationa Congressional Black Caucus to put together an unprecedented exhibition which included murals of select CBC Members. The exhibition took place at the Convention Center in Washington, DC. The murals were designed and painted by artists from 27 countries around the world.
NMOH AT 5POINTZ
Throughout the years between 2006 - 2013, The National Museum of Hip-Hop had a close relationship with the legendary graffiti Mecca-5Pointz in Long Icland City. In 2009, NMoH shot and produced it's first short film on site at 5Pointz and had helped in the fight to keep the site alive and active. Unfortunately, the owner of the site had other plans for the property and destroyed it. A large part of the NMoH Graffiti Program is to help revive 5Pointz.
NMOH AT DC CHARITY
Every year, since 2008, The National Museum of Hip-Hop has teamed up with non profits in various urban communities across the US to produce graffiti exhibition fundraisers. The idea has always been to simultaneously raise awareness for local graffiti artists as well as funds for local non profit causes.
