The Trap Music Museum unveiled its latest art exhibition “Pluto: Astronaut Status,” inspired by Atlanta-based rapper Future on his birthday, Nov. 20. The installation is an ode to Atlanta’s self-proclaimed “Pluto.”
Future, an Atlanta native, is a Grammy award-winning American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer whose record label FREEBANDZ also operates as an international full-service entertainment company. The rapper is arguably one of the innovators of the Atlanta trap music sound and has ushered a wave of artists influenced by hit records such as “Turn On the Lights,” “Move That Dope,” “Fuck Up Some Commas,” “Where Ya At,” “Jumpman,” “Low Life” and “Mask Off.”
“We are proud to introduce an exhibit that resembles the creativity and artistic style that Future brings to Trap Music Culture,” said James Miller, marketing manager for the Trap Music Museum.
The installation was curated by Trap Music Museum set designer Rich Bizarre. Bizarre, who has wowed audiences nationwide with art installations that explore social justice, has also curated TMM’s in-house art activations for the Trap Music Museum inspired by Nicki Minaj & Cardi B.
“We at Trap Music Museum, want to really embody Future and his music catalog,” said Krystal Garner, general manager of the Trap Museum. “We were excited to unveil the Pluto Astronaut: Status exhibit on his birthday.”
