Universal Hip Hop Museum

To our fellow patrons and supporters,

We wanted to personally update you on how we will be handling this global pandemic that has reached our city. The Universal Hip Hop Museum is closely monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and New York City health officials as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves. We feel we have a social responsibility to ensure our patrons are safe and protected. Our exhibit has implemented the following measures to ensure a safe environment. Accordingly, we have decided to close the [R]Evolution of Hip Hop from Wednesday March 18th to Tuesday April 7th and we will open back up on Wednesday April 8th. We are specifically adhering to guidance around social distancing and no large group gatherings to protect our patrons and our staff.

We will be constantly looking for updates from the NYC Department of Health, CDC, and Federal Government relating to social engagements and operations of public venues. We will keep you updated as we know. Till then, be safe!

The Knowledge

The Art And Inspiration Of André LeRoy Davis

Expression is a beautiful thing, it’s the perfect synonym of art. The ability to express in any way or form is a subliminal gift, not often understood but deeply felt. The creation of something that is born from thoughts and emotions, not only for others to see and experience but also to feel and live. It is more than a way of life. And that’s what André LeRoy Davis, known as A. L. Dré, does with his art since he can remember, transmit with boldness and wit his creativity, ideas, and convictions.
