IS 367 - Art, Advertising, & Hip-Hop Culture (3)

The elements of hip-hop culture including graffiti, poetry, spoken word, music, fashion, and video are explored as they influence art, advertising, and pop culture. Hip hop is also examined as a tool for community problem solving and advocacy. In this light, students prepare a portfolio of hip-hop influenced artistic and advertising executions for presentation and critique. Youth culture expresses their unique social and political views through graffiti and street art while advertisers market everything from sodas to sneakers mirrored in hip hop culture. The weekend intensive format allows for an exploration into both the breadth and depth of hip hop cultural influence as it relates to individual creativity, cultural evolution, and community problem solving.
