As artists coming up in New York City, the three elements that inspired and defined our crew’s wild youthful years are represented in our logo: 2’ (Kicks-street style) + 12” (Vinyl-music) = 212 (NYC as muse). In the streets, on the courts and at the clubs all three elements were with us in some form. Paths of Rhythm is a show about being a creative person in NYC.
A portion of all proceeds from this show will go to Art for Progress, a 501©3 non profit arts organization. Art For Progress’ Arts Education Community provides underserved youth with dynamic artistic programming that promotes reflection and self-expression.
