About this Event
<h4>The Billie Holiday Theatre Celebrates Black History Month with</h4><h4>The Sky's The Limit: Music is My Resistance Exhibition</h4><h4>Featuring Sherwin Banfield’s BIG Sculpture</h4><h4>“Sky’s the Limit in the County of Kings”</h4>


The Billie Holiday Theatre, one of the nation’s preeminent arts and culture organizations, will commemorate Black History Month with the launch of “Sky's The Limit: Music is My Resistance,” a unique visual art exhibition experience exploring the concept of Black resistance through music. Launching on February 15, the exhibition will be anchored by renowned visual artist Sherwin Banfield’s larger-than-life sculpture of hip hop icon Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace (AKA Biggie). Originally unveiled in DUMBO in 2022 to much fanfare, the piece - named “Sky’s the Limit in the County of Kings” - will make its way to Biggie’s own Bed Stuy neighborhood where the nine-foot statue will take centerstage in The Billie’s lobby and gallery hall.

Additionally, a selection of Banfield’s smaller sculpted pieces will be on display. The exhibition will also feature works from other artists and all works will be available for sale including the “Sky’s the Limit in the County of Kings” sculpture.
