Saturday, December 15 | 7 PM | $20 ($15 for Friends of SAC / $10 for Students)
Hip Hop artist, rapper, human beat boxer Baba Israel returns to combine forces with an all-star lineup of jazz musicians for this incredible night of genre fusion.
“One of the main goals of this concert series is to present and showcase the wonderful world of music within the Jazz umbrella and beyond. The roots of rhythm and history of the Americas is the unique melting pot of world cultures and societies.” says series organizer Claes Brondal. “We want people to experience some of the best music gumbos and genres rooted in this country. The sub-text is that all humans are interconnected and we live on this planet as one – ultimately sharing one big fat world culture. Considering the rich history of the Bronx and Manhattan – Jazz/Salsa/Hip-Hop is the obvious but not famous musical family. There is so much we can do within the spirit and traditions of these styles!”

TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation.
