"Acknickulous" Summer Street Art

Showing from June 17th through July 29th

1028 Park Avenue Huntington, NY 11743

(631) 239-1805

RIPE welcomes back some of our favorite boys of summer...

Well known street artists MasPaz, MilkSop, and Tobal.

"Acknickulous" an old school term from a rapper named EST. He was the lead in the group '3 Times Dope'. He had a song called "the acknickulous one". It's not even a real word, but in the song he explains what it means. Used as the show title because, it's reminiscent of old school hip-hop and fuses the different styles with a ridiculous word that just feels right.

John’s Crazy Socks is a Local Huntington father-son venture inspired by John Lee Cronin, a young man with Down syndrome, and his love of colorful and fun socks, or what he calls his “crazy socks.” It’s a business built on love. They're on a mission to spread happiness through socks. Part of the proceeds go towards The Special Olympics.

Giving Back: They donate 5 percent of their earnings to the Special Olympics and they’ve created a series of Awareness and Charity socks and donate money from each pair of socks to causes like Down syndrome and Autism awareness, the Special Olympics and breast cancer research.
