The concept of the BoomBox Exhibition; presented by House of Art Gallery, is to demonstrate the influence of the boombox through various facets from the 70’s-mid 80’s; such as fashion, music and politics. The Boombox was an intrinsic part of incubating so much sonic New York history, in pulling together this study we’ll see, live and embrace a device that was part of the fabric of the city.
The House of Art Gallery endeavors to exhibit Lyle’s work from his love of the “boombox” as well as other influential, established artists who felt inspired from the era. The group exhibition will feature seminal Boombox celebrated works from; Jamel Shabazz, Justin Bua, Frank Morrison, Dan Ericson, Najee Dorsey, Charlotta Janssen, Nina Boesch and Phyllis Stephens. The opening reception will be a special night to meet the artists, discuss their passions, and reminisce about memories held when the boombox became a staple through a persuasive era.
Exhibition Dates: April 12, 2013 – June 9, 2013

FRIDAY, 3/1 at 6pm + afterparty from 10pm on-> #TheSolution6 closes out with the opening of the second Art Of Records show, co-curated by Dunn the Signtologist and DJ Low Key, which features some of Denver’s top artists flipping classic hip hop albums covers in all sorts of incredible directions, all while DJ Low Key rocks at all vinyl set of the records that inspired the pieces. Last year’s show at Family Affair was RIDICULOUS (see pics here) and things are shaping even even crazier for 2013, so please join us at the Meadowlark as we recognize and pay homage to the talented assortment of artists that make The Art Of Records such an indelible part of loving music. After 10pm, things switch over to The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez and the party continues on with the best in hip hop & more til 2am, so plan to make a night of it. Check out a few pics from last year and more info on the show below. 21+/No cover until 11/$5 after/2701 Larimer St.
Over the last few decades album art has gone from a 12” canvases to a 2” screens, and that’s usually the best-case scenario for the often incredible art that accompanies music releases. Landmark albums like A Tribe Called Quest’s Low End Theory, Nas’s Illmatic and De La Soul is Dead have instantly recognizable covers that are embedded in music and art lovers’ psyches forever, but the 12” as a canvas has become a rarity in the public eye. Everyone from music and art lovers to average people on the street still connect to both the album art and 12” format, yet we rarely take the time to honor the truly great ones. The Art Of Records is an exhibit that aims to do just that; focusing on the legacy of exceptional art accompanying exceptional music and the idea of introducing both to a new generation.
The Art Of Records combines art, music and tradition to celebrate and honor the rich history and mystique of record cover art, 12″ vinyl and the artists that create it (both musically and graphically). Curated by Dunn the Signtologist and DJ Low Key, the exhibit features a series of classic 12″ album and single covers re-imagined and recreated by top artists in Denver. The 12” covers will also be on display and the concept comes full circle with DJ Low Key playing an all vinyl set of the featured records as the night’s soundtrack.
CONTRIBUTED PHOTO Corpus Christi blues-rock band The Shakedown performs at 6 p.m. Friday at House of Rock for the Live! at the Loop Studios concert series. The charity event also will be broadcast on Classic Rock 104.5 FM.
CORPUS CHRISTI — The ArtWalk is going to dance.
The First Friday tradition supporting Corpus Christi’s local art scene is branching out this week to support a local band in conjunction with the Live! at the Loop concert series, Classic Rock 104.5 and the House of Rock for a fundraising concert to benefit St. Jude’s Hospital research.
Dylan Ely, who owns the Loop recording studio is thrilled to have The Shakedown playing.
“The Shakedown is just a band that has a really good following here locally,” Ely said. “They are involved in the community and being that St. Jude is part of the fundraiser it just sort of made sense.”
The friend of a friend introduced Dylan and his wife, Michelle, to The Shakedown.
“We really try to show bands that are ready to take it to the next level,” he said. “The Shakedown is one of those bands that sort of stand out.”
ArtWalk takes place the first Friday evening of every month at Retama Park and features a host of downtown galleries with open doors and refreshments for art lovers.
Ely invited Daniel Ericson, a high school friend also known as The Street Sign Artist, to auction off some of his artwork for the festival.
Ericson paints “hip-hop tableaus on deteriorating street signs,” according to an article on the Denver Westword blog.
“He’s been a real good friend of ours and we wanted to bring him here to get him a little recognition here,” Ely said.
Ericson will auction of some of his paintings with the proceeds going to St. Jude’s research.
Ely credited the House of Rock and Radio Station 104.5 with helping with the Live at the Loop series as well.
The Shakedown’s concert will be filmed and the radio station will rebroadcast it Sunday.
The concert will be at the House of Rock. The doors open at 5 p.m. with the music starting at 6 p.m. Admission is free.
