Photoblog : Elevate Atlanta The Art Of Organized Noize @ Gallery 72 Atlanta Ga 10.15.2015

Last night I went over to Gallery 72 in Downtown Atlanta to check out the opening reception of The Art of Organized Noize  exhibit. This was the kick off event for this years Elevate Atlanta  . Curated by Atlanta's own, visual artist Fahamu Pecou . This exhibit had pieces of memorabilia from the continuing career of Organized Noize and The Dungeon Family . For those who are familiar with Organized Noize , they are the production team behind the Dungeon Family whose members include Outkast, Goodie MoB , Witch Doctor, Back Bone , Society of Soul and Joi , just to name a few . And They were one of the major forces that put Atlanta and Southern Hip Hop on the music map . Organized Noize members Rico Wade, Ray Murray, and Pat "Sleepy" Brown were in the house talking to fans and supporters, telling their story about the music. Fahamu Pecou and Camille Russell Love, from the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs, gave a quick intro about the Elevate program. Then Fahamu introduced Hip Hop Photographer Jonathan Mannion , who was in the house as well and he spoke about working with Organized Noize and Outkast on past shoots. It was definitely a great evening , also Dj Tabone was rocking providing the soundtrack for the evening. But enough from me lets see the pics. enjoy
