Herald Square is getting a rather large glimpse of the Bronx and it’s coming to the iconic Macy’s windows on West 34th Street.
Windows of Hip Hop collaborated with the department store, Bulova and artist Nicholai Khan to design an iconic Bronx display window for all Manhattan passersby to see for Macy’s special ‘Back to School Season.’
The designed window celebrates the two elements of hip-hop and education, featuring two portraits etched onto chalkboards in addition to Bulova watch sculptures atop student desks along with other street art and of course a tagged ‘Hip Hop Boulevard’ street sign beneath a large ‘Back to School’ spray painted print.
“I want everyone to come down to Macy’s Herald Square and get a small taste of what we cooked up with Mr. Khan and Bulova,” said legendary Bronx rapper Grandmaster Caz, a founder of WoHH.
Part of his mission is constructing a music studio at C.S. 55 school in Claremont, which is referenced in one of the decorated chalkboards.
“The school is honored to have Bulova support the vision of its educators as well as the creation of the new music studio,” said C.S. 55 principal, Luis Torres.
“We are happy to announce that C.S. 55 was chosen by Bulova and Macy’s for a window display dedicated to the school, “the elementary school principal added.
WoHH will continue the festivities with a event featuring special hip hop workshops and open mic for kids at the Mall at Bay Plaza Macy’s from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 21.
