For most people who profess an interest in it, culture means "high culture" – generally the work of writers, painters, playwrights and musicians who scuttle through the shallow puddles of visual and performing art.Those at the more popular fringes of visual and performing art – hip-hop and graffiti artists, for instance – keep at least one foot in the deep well that is popular culture, coursing through a rich and varied soup that includes stuff like bodybuilding, pimped-out automobiles and laser epilating devices.Organizers represent "Urban Culture" as a pop culture, pop art extravaganza that includes everything from music to crafts and street art to dance.The program includes a daylong exercise in live painting – a form that blends visual art and performance – to be conducted by tattoo artist, graphic designer and graffiti artist Hady Beydoun.
