Taking it to the streets!

It seems like this weekend is shaping up to be a Hip Hop meets Art (read Graffiti/Street Art) kind of weekend. Following last nights opening of M3: MCs, Mics & Metaphors @ Flashpoint we have Graffiti Rhapsody and Heavy Hitterz jumping off this weekend. The visual arts scene is definitely progressing and growing in DC so I strongly encourage everyone to support the events involve indepedent artists, whether just by showing up or buying a piece. Remember - Art imitates life and life imitates art.
