#TaniaOnTheScene - Music is defined as; an art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color. 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.
if you log on to House of Art Gallery’s Youtube page ( http://www.youtube.com/user/nychouseofart ) you will see people sharing their “Boombox Memory”. I’m sure we all have a fun, memorable story to tell, if not a story, maybe an old picture to share, or some sort of memorabilia that reminds you of the boombox.
It’s very simple to join in on the fun. Just grab your phone or camera and tell a brief story; ” My Boombox Memory”. Upload on YouTube, and share on your social media page. Tag @JmaeCadet or House of Art Gallery (@hoagallery) and mention Boombox Exhibition.
