Before the MTA’s Poetry in Motion program, subway trains displayed the work of a different kind of writer. See the seminal documentary on ’80s graffiti and hip-hop culture at a free screening at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Producer Henry Chalfant and artist Jane Dickson will introduce the 1983 movie, preceded by the short film “City Maze,” which documents Dickson’s 1980 cardboard-and-graffiti installation of the same name. The event is part of the museum’s monthly 1040 Lounge series of boozy art events, which means beers (from Bronx Brewery, of course) will be available by donation.
