Harry Allen Exhibition in NYC

This weekend I'm taking the C Train up to Manhattan to check out the Eyejammie Fine Arts Gallery, which is holding an exhibition of the photography of hip-hop activist and media assassin, Harry Allen. Most of the images are from the mid-1980's and are very rare and previously unseen. During the period, Allen attended Adelphi University in Long Island and, while working at the student radio station, became associated with a wide range of music icons. Artists who appear in much of Allen’s work include Run-DMC, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, LL Cool J and comedian and activist Dick Gregory. The collection is called "Part of the Permanent Record: Photos From the Previous Century," and will be open to the public from through Thursday, August 16. Check out more of the exhibit here.
