Why We Care. Why you should… Artists have always been used as a stepping stone in converting low income neighborhoods into hip and happening places where money can be invested. Only then does the City care enough to start cleaning it up so folks with money can begin to move into remodeled residential buildings after old residents get evicted. This show is an opportunity for all artists to do what we do best, express our feelings and emotions about this growing virus that is affecting so many low income neighborhoods, and allow them to showcase conscious work that speaks against Displacement atrocities rather than disguising it.
