It is almost impossible to overstate the importance of hip-hop and music to southern Black culture and The Dirty South—even the exhibition’s name is inspired by southern hip-hop. Join us in the Great Hall for an artist conversation exploring the connections between music, art, and culture, and see for yourself just how this one genre has the power to shape the South.

Tickets are $12 ($10 for members), reserve your spot online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.

About The Dirty South Weekend

For one weekend only, July 15 – 17, we’re bringing together hip-hop artists, poets, scholars, and more for a multi-day event designed to explore the themes of The Dirty South: Contemporary Art, Material Culture, and the Sonic Impulse like never before. Come immerse yourself in the sounds and stories of The Dirty South as we celebrate a century of southern Black culture.
