Although hip hop originated as a musical genre, it has grown into a culture all its own. It has influenced and inspired other genres of music, the fashion industry, movies and television, and pop culture as a whole.

Hip hop has also had an important impact on art. Stupid Dope Moves highlighted art influenced by the complex, compelling, and “dope” aspects of hip hop culture.

Artists in all visual mediums—painting, sculpture, photography, mix-media, video, etc.—were encouraged to submit images and concepts inspired by hip hop culture
