From July, 13-16 during the 2018 All Star Week, MLB Assembly will celebrate baseball at the intersection of art, fashion and music in Washington, D.C. with a number of exclusive drops and experiences curated by MLB at District Pier at The Wharf.
The pop-up will showcase a number of designers, musicians, athletes and artists for an experiential event inviting fans, and casual observers, to a curated interplay between baseball and the arts.
Of the artists participating in the MLB Assembly is LA-based Skyler Grey of Avant Gallery – an 18-year-old street art sensation deemed the Fresh Prince of Street Art in Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list of 2017.
Grey began painting as form of therapy when he was only 10 years old (after the unexpected death of his mom), and had his first commissioned work aged 13.
Rearranging pop cultural icons with bursts of vivid color, Grey’s works have been acquired by hip-hop artists The Game, Snoop Dogg and actress Gabrielle Union. Grey’s most widely-circulated work, “Queen Amy” (appropriating late singer Amy Winehouse as the Queen Elizabeth II), has appeared in galleries and private viewings worldwide. Other notable works include collaborations with Chanel and Hermes, with a Grey touch of characters from Popeye and Mickey Mouse.
