Gentrification and the Arts: Tuesday July 23, 1-2 pm

You are missing some Flash content that should appear here! Perhaps your browser cannot display it, or maybe it did not initialize correctly.

Are the artists who colonize Baltimore’s three official arts districts mere pawns in the gentrification of the city’s marginal neighborhoods? Will they end up getting pushed out after paving the way for others? We examine that provocative question with urban architect KlausPhilipsen, president of ArchPlan Inc., and president and co-founder of D center, the Baltimore non-profit that promotes the field of design; Fred Lazarus, president of the Maryland Institute College of Art; and visual artist Stewart Watson, a Station North resident and the co-owner of Oliver Street Studios and Area 405.
