Gucci Mane-Themed Art Exhibit Comes to Williamsburg

WILLIAMSBURG — Rapper Gucci Mane is getting the gallery treatment.

An art exhibit popping up in Williamsburg will focus on works of visual art inspired by the Atlanta hip-hop star, known for such songs as "Trap House" and "Lemonade."

The event is part of Tumblr's IRL series, in which artwork that's traveled through the social network is brought into the brick-and-mortar world.

Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Delantic Davis, has been making music from prison, where he's currently locked up for carrying a concealed weapon and marijuana possession.

The "visionary" rapper has been releasing albums since 2005 and is Atlanta's "musical godfather," according to an event description.

The exhibit, called THE BURRPRINT, will "celebrate [his] artistry and influence."

"Through this music and art series, artists paint the picture behind the creation of their work, focusing on the visuals, their inspirations and the emotions of their music," the description said.

The exhibit will be on display at Villain, located at 50 North Third St., on Sunday, Aug. 10, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. It will feature performances by 808 Mafia, Rome Fortune and Farrington G.
