Teens take over the Crocker

Teens with a passion for art will unite at the Crocker Art Museum for The Takeover: An Art Jam by & for Youth.

The takeover will feature poetry readings, DJ performances, hip hop dance, graffiti battles, screenprinting and skating demos, all in celebration of the art and culture of Sacramento youth.

DJs AmpONE and Love Poison from Sol Collective will be manning the turntables. Project4Trees, a Sacramento-based hip-hop group, will perform their modern twist on California-style music. Teen bands The Hungry of Sacramento and Crow Canyon of Davis will also perform.

Regional aerosol artists will battle it out in a graffiti contest, showcasing the nontraditional yet popular artform. A creative career lounge will also be available to teach the teens about their potential futures in the artistic world.

For the extremists, 28th and B Street Skatepark, part of the Sacramento Parks and Recreation District, and Few and Far, a group of women who skate and create street art, will perform skate demos.

Parental units, fear not. Teens can drop off their chaperones at the parent-sitting area where they can have a yoga class, relax with chair massages and express their own creativity through art activities.

The teens will take over on Thursday, August 1, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Admission to the Takeover is free for teens and museum members. For non-member adults, activities are included with admission to the museum.
