Art Meets Reality in MTV’s HollyHood

Artitudes, a Memphis, Tenn., art gallery, helped to furnish paintings for upcoming MTV reality show Adventures in HollyHood,which features Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia.

The works of art are displayed throughout the house and will be featured in the background on the series.

"Relocating to Hollywood is a big move for Paul and Juicy J," executive producer Kevin Lee said. "The guys wanted to keep their roots nearby by surrounding themselves with artwork that reminded them of their home in Memphis."

As a result, the producers contacted Artitudes and selected several pieces from their gallery.

"Juicy J and Paul have always liked Artitudes Gallery, and it made sense for us to reach out and see if the gallery could help us out,” Lee said. "Danny Jenkins, the owner of the gallery, was more than helpful."

In addition to featuring art from the gallery, MTV production crews are planning to briefly film there when crews follow Juicy J and Paul home for a visit to Memphis in November.

Adventures in HollyHood is set to premiere in early 2007.
