History of Hip

Thanks for coming to the 2014 season of History of Hip!

This series explores the mysterious factors that confer hipness on an artist or a fad, and traces the origins of creative genres that still register with artists, audiences, and tastemakers today. This season, we look at booze, bootlegging and beer, in connection with the History Center exhibit "American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition."

 $10 ($8 MHS members). 

Programs are held at the Turf Club, 1601 University Ave. W. The Lounge at the Historic Turf Club is only accessible by stairs.  Please call 651-259-3015 if you need alternative accommodations for this program. Please note: These are 21+ events. 

 
In the rare event of unforeseen scheduling conflicts, this program will be moved to the Minnesota History Center, 345 Kellogg Blvd. W., St. Paul MN 55102
