The national art and music showcase gears up for its third visit to Los Angeles. Art, Beats + Lyrics, the national art and music tour presented by Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey and curated by Cult Creative, is back for its 19th year, and will be in Los Angeles this Friday, June 23. The event will be held from 6:00pm – 11:00pm at the Shrine Expo Hall.

Launched by Cult Creative in 2004 as a local art show in Atlanta, Art, Beats + Lyrics provides a platform to celebrate art and hip-hop culture. This year’s showcase invites art and culture enthusiasts to come celebrate at its pop-up exhibits for its post-pandemic program.

“Art, Beats + Lyrics merges together two things that have the unique ability to connect people of all cultures, ages, and ethnicities — music and art, ” says Fabricia da Silva, Multicultural Marketing Manager, Brown-Forman. “And, after such an unpredictable year, we all deserve a celebration that highlights strength, inspiration, and that moves the culture forward. This is the Very essence of Art, Beats + Lyrics, and we are thrilled to bring that celebration back this year.”

Art, Beats + Lyrics has been historically embedded in the community, specifically uniting and providing a national platform for upcoming and seasoned veterans from both the visual art and hip-hop sphere. The 2023 tour will exclusively toast to the program’s years of authentic artistry by visiting eight cities across the country, which include five first-time locations. The 2023 tour stops include Miami, Atlanta, Oakland, Houston, Chicago, New York, LA and New Orleans. Attendees will be invited to interact, celebrate, enjoy art from over 50 visual artists from across the country, and special musical performances from national recording artists, all while enjoying signature Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey cocktails.

“The 2023 exhibit won’t disappoint,” says Art, Beats + Lyrics curator Dwayne “Dubelyoo” Wright. “You can expect new, innovative installations with artists leveraging their creative talents to showcase not only the intersection between hip-hop music and visual art, but also using their craft to highlight activism, promote social justice and to capture history.”
