Coup d’etat Brooklyn Fuses Art & Fashion With “Live To Change Something” Slogan
Without a doubt, Coup d’etat Brooklyn has been making global noise with their classic “Teach The Babies” tee, to their involvement with community arts and development and their TV appearances on both BET and NBC. The “graphically-bold” fashion line based out of Brooklyn, New York City is not only focusing on fashion, but the manifestation of the arts.
The 2nd Annual Coup d’etat Brooklyn Art-show features work from artists who represent the Coup d’etat Brooklyn Art Collective (One9, Sam Wilson, Ibrahim, Lichiban, Suhail Smith, Rob Fokused, SeeOne and several other amazing creators).
The Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation’s Center for Arts and Culture, PUMA and the collective are opening: “Live To Change Something Through Art,“ a mixed media exhibition of works created by 23 local NYC artists on Saturday, November 21, 2009.
Lead by co-founders Rasu Jilani and Daoud Abeid (Sunshowah Films) the 1st Annual Art Show led over 500 people in 2008 (and lasted only a day). The 2009 event will start November 21, 2009 and will last until January 31, 2010.
