Monster Stereo, Art Live | Miami Dade College Museum of Art, and Legal Art/Cannonball | Miami, FL | October 2012
About the Show
As a collaboration between LegalArt Miami and Miami Dade College Museum of Art, Whoop Dee Doo represented these organizations to create an interactive performance and installation for the Art Live Fair, an event that benefitted the homeless women and children at the Lotus House in the Overtown neighborhood of Miami.
Ten Whoop Dee Doo artists from Baltimore, Portland and Kansas City resided at LegalArt for ten days to create an installation titled “Monster Stereo”. Whoop Dee Doo artists created the Monster Stereo set piece, which would serve as an oversized record player that would play an original haunted song, making monsters emerge from the giant speakers and perform for the audience. Our youth group, comprised of seven young women enrolled in the Urgent, Inc. Rites of Passage Youth Empowerment Academy, worked alongside Whoop Dee Doo artists to create the visual design, personality, and choreography for each monster costume.
