ArtCrawl Harlem™ and Souleo Enterprises launches Motown to Def Jam, a multi-gallery visual art exhibition celebrating songs from the Chess, Def Jam, Motown, Stax and Philadelphia International Records catalogs, from June 11 through June 30, as part of African-American Music Appreciation Month. Specially commissioned works by over 40 painters, sculptors and new-media artists will be on display at four Harlem art galleries: LeRoy Neiman Art Center, Strivers Gardens Gallery, La Maison d’Art and The Sol Studio. Participating artists include Aanisah Hinds, daughter of Grammy-winning singer Macy Gray, and S. Ross Browne, 2011 winner, Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series.

On June 15 a four-hour trolley-bus tour – led by expert guides and culminating with a dinner gala at Broadway Housing Communities’ Rio Galleries featuring popular performers from the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s Music Under New York paying tribute to the legendary labels – bolsters the kickoff.
