Over the course of the last two years, Urban Arts showcase has provided a platform for many brands and artists to engage with consumers and fans in the greater NYC area. Using social media we were able to generate significant exposure online for the participating artists, brands, and events. Using a variety of venues, we held past events on the Jewel Yacht (harbor cruise of NYC), Graffiti Art New York in Tribeca, and Specials on C (a former bodega turned event space in Alphabet City). The next event will take place at the Open House Cocktail Lounge on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Some of the past event sponsors include G-Shock, Reebok, KidRobot, Ciroc, Redbull, Calebs Kola, and Cazal Eyewear. We are proud to announce that our past success has allowed us to take the authentic HipHop experience to the global level in 2015. Stay tuned for updates on our 2015 International Tour and thank you for your continued support.
