Can Art Reduce Potential Gentrification in a Community?

This picture project focuses on two communities in the United States located in Chicago’s Bronzeville and Detroit’s Heidelberg Street. These communities have implemented community art based programs or projects that aimed at reducing gentrifying forces in their community. Through these artistic installations, these two communities have been able to improve the physical surroundings of their neighborhoods,  as well as develop a unified network of people by creating social relationships and greater access to resources among community members.
