Get Back In BK With Ricky Powell This Friday
Hope you got a taste for a nice icy Frozade, because we’ve got a hell of a photo show coming to 350 Broadway this Friday: the one and only Ricky Powell, designated visual cataloguer of New York City’s hip-hop history, will be bringing a selection of his work to the store in a collection entitled Back In BK. Never more than a lens away from the heart of NYC’s street scene since the 1980s, Powell captures the vibrancy of this city and its music, whether its through pictures of stars like The Beastie Boys and Run DMC or citizens rambling through the village.
Back in BK will show off work from his entire career, a portal into a New York long past and a window the one that still thrives just outside your door. As usual, we’re throwing a party to celebrate the opening night, and I have to imagine that Mr. Powell will be bringing out quite the crew. So be sure to come by 350 Broadway this Friday night. Come back to BK. You know you want to.
