Dre Urhahn is one half of the Dutch artist duo Haas&Hahn. The pair are best known for their stunning mural project in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro.

Both their solo and partnered works are admired around the world. So admired that in November 2012 they were commissioned by the Mural Arts program to work on the Philly Painting Project–a colorful mural spanning 4-blocks along Germantown Avenue in North Philadelphia, where they mobilized local youth to paint the entire street.

Urhahn will be having an open discussion and presentation at Rutgers University in Camden, as a part of their "Finding Your Voice" lecture series. “Finding Your Voice” is an inspirational series of informal talks with young professionals about keeping a sense of purpose, creativity and committed integrity in today’s work environment and is a collaborative effort between the Campus Center, Office of Campus Involvement, and Smyrski Creative.

Join the conversation this Wednesday, April 9 at 12:15 pm at the university's Campus Center. This event is free and open to the public.
