Spray paint on the walls and breakdancers in the house…it’s the 80s all over again here at the City Museum! Join the b-boys and b-girls of Hush Tours in our rotunda for breakdancing & hip hop every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday at 11:30 a.m.
Come step your print on the museum; how often will you get to break it down on the marble floors of Fifth Ave.? It’s all part of our City as Canvas summer, bringing the graffiti art of Keith Haring, Lee Quiñones, LADY PINK, and FUTURA 2000 to life!
Check out these steps from our debut demo this morning.
The Rotunda: Where we break it down!
"This fascinating show and its indispensable catalog chronicle the rise and fall of the calligraphic, illegal art form known as “wild style” graffiti in New York in the 1970s and ’80s."

“As New York is hard-edged and mechanistic, the ceilings are sensuously organic; as it is tightly vertical, they are broadly expansive; as it is brooding, they are joyous. And what is astonishing about these great curving forms… is that they are made up of relentlessly orthogonal building blocks: flat clay tiles, typically 6 inches by 12 inches.”
