ART + ISSUES: GENTRIFICATION - COLONIZATION OR URBAN UPLIFT?

Are we uplifting communities or creating local colonies? Are rising property values also forcing people out and creating fiefdoms within communities? You’ve heard the fervent debates both locally and nationally. Tonight you can join UTC English and Honors professor and novelist Sybil Baker as we explore this issue through examining a contemporary print in our galleries and joining in this hour long discussion about this community issue.

Like all art + issues programs this evening is free to all in the community.
