Arts and the City

This session will look at the integration, or the lack thereof, of arts and the city in communities of color. Case studies include New Haven, San Francisco and Riverside, California and will dive into where art was integrated into development and for whom this art was for. Riverside will look at the preservation of a former library as the new Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art and Culture and how the preservation of this new formalist building has galvanized a community.
