Wheeling Heritage will host an opening reception for Hip Hop: A Black Tie Affair, on Feb. 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Artisan Center, 1400 Main Street. The exhibit will feature more than a dozen artists displaying photos, graffiti, and mixed-media pieces, as well as a video featuring area hip-hop artists performing a capella.
The project, a partnership between the YWCA Wheeling and Wheeling Heritage, seeks to break down stereotypes and assumptions.
The exhibit will run until Friday, Feb. 15. The Artisan Center gallery is open to the public Monday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
