This Saturday we will be officially celebrating the opening of our 2nd location with a party coinciding with the month-long Ricky Powell Photo Exhibit at our new space.
Ricky gained notoriety in the 80's while tagging along with the Beastie Boys on Run-DMC's Raising Hell tour. Some of the photographs that he took while on tour became significant and he became the unofficial “fourth Beastie Boy”. He toured with the group as Def Jam Records’ de facto in-house photographer on their "Licensed to Ill" tour in 1987 and Together Forever: Greatest Hits 1983–1991 tour with Run DMC and then again in 1992 on their Check Your Head tour and the 1994 Lollapalooza. Powell is famous for being featured in the song "Car Thief" on the Paul's Boutique album, with the lyrics: “Homeboy throw in the towel, Your girl got dicked by Ricky Powell".
Ricky is coming in from NYC to be a part of the event and FICE will serve as the gallery for the exhibit. The event runs from 7pm-midnight at 2654 Walnut Street.
Come enjoy your community space.
