Gentrification & Public Art

Rather than banish cultural diversity and homogenize Oakland by turning a blind eye to foreclosures and/or supporting redevelopment efforts which displace current residents, CRP advocates for the creation of cultural arts corridors decorated by vibrant public art murals which aid blight reduction, deter crime and vandalism, and help keep property values from free-falling in economically-challenged neighborhoods. Cultural arts corridors support positive transformative change in Oakland’s neighborhoods without hastening gentrification. Public art is also a reminder that our communities belong to us, and not the big banks and corporate interests.
