Event Description:

Awesomeness Award Nominee!

Hear from hip-hop legend Cey Adams, creative director of Def Jam Recordings, and local artists on the revolutionary power of art. Music, art work, and other creative expressions will be showcased throughout the evening.

Visual artist and creative director of Def Jam Recordings, Cey Adams’ revolutionary career, unique vision, and creativity makes him the seminal iconographer for the visual history of hip-hop. As the Creative Director of Def Jam Recordings, he co-founded the Drawing Board, the label’s in-house visual design firm, where he created visual identities, album covers, logos, and advertising campaigns for Run DMC, Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, and Jay-Z.  

Adams will give a talk on his career, his contributions to the history of hip-hop, and art as a catalyst for dialogue and change. Local artists will also share their thoughts on the role of art in community, showcase their own creative pieces, and lead a community art project!

Metered street parking and library garage parking is available off of Pennsylvania Street at $1/hr.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs encouraged.

Presented by The Indianapolis Public Library and The Kheprw Institute's art and cultural assembly, The Build.
