When it comes to art Philly has no shortage of talented visual artists. So when recording artist turned entrepreneur Redi teamed up with Traci Freeman they wanted to create an interactive art gallery they didn’t have to look far. Enlisting the help of five local artists Lopez Divinci, Cheo Matunde, Don Scott, Jar Almighty and Don’t Did This, Redi and Traci’s vision of Kings Gallery came to life.
Located at 3251 Fox St., Kings Gallery is what Redi describes as a place where many of his music content is brought to life. “It’s all the same thing, either you’re doing art through music or you’re doing art through a paint brush it’s all art and we are all are collectively one culture. Every artist I collaborated with is like a feature in music,” Redi explains.
So what can guests expect? In total Kings Gallery boasts close to 20 installations in its sprawling 3,000 sq. ft. space. The current exhibit dubbed Art Shit Only encompasses many childhood memories. “It’s a gallery that consists of dope custom-made selfies dedicated to street art, street wear, rap music and the culture. We got into specifics with stuff that we loved from our childhood like Friday, Martin, Vibe Magazine, music, gaudy fashion, everything we love we just bring it to life. I want people to come in here, take selfies have a good time, take some pictures, have a cup of wine and also know this was custom made for the culture,” Redi adds.
In addition to general visits, Kings Gallery is also available for birthdays, private events as well as corporate events. The current hours of operations are Saturdays and Sundays 11 am – 8:30 pm. Tickets are $50 and can be found here. Each ticket comes with a complimentary glass of wine.
