The group art exhibit is benefiting housing rights services that help fight displacement by informing residents of their rights. California artists along with Chulita Vinyl Club (an all female DJ group) are donating their time and skills to make this a memorable event for everyone!
Let those who have been affected by displacement know they are not alone and that there is hope. Proceeds donated to Oakland’s housing rights organization Causa Justa :: Just Cause.
3 Dot will also provide art for a “Just Cause” so be sure to stop by our neighbors!
Why We Care. Why you should…
Artists have always been used as a stepping stone in converting low income neighborhoods into hip and happening places where money can be invested. Only then does the City care enough to start cleaning it up so folks with money can begin to move into remodeled residential buildings after old residents get evicted.
This show is an opportunity for all artists to do what we do best, express our feelings and emotions about this growing virus that is affecting so many low income neighborhoods, and allow them to showcase conscious work that speaks against Displacement atrocities rather than disguising it.
Art donated from a variety of California artists tackling Displacement and its atrocities.
