  1. I’m curious if there was any attempt by anyone in these “new” (but not so new) art studios to reach out to the surrounding community that was already established. I was born and raised in one of these “ghettos” of Houston and I’m all for improvements but for ALL the community. We worked as a community to get improvements (sidewalks, more security, Railroad crossing, etc) but many times we were ignored by the city (imagine that, the working class poor being ignored…lol.). The wards of Houston are historic and have tons of culture. There is art everywhere. There are murals depicting leaders like Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, and other art regarding the civil rights movement in Texas. The only way to see them though is to truly be IN the community. This is why people hate gentrification. People come in, assume the people don’t care and never tried to improve their neighborhood then proceed to bulldoze historic buildings to put up more lofts and studios or try out price and move out people who’ve been there for 3 generations. Most time the “gentrifiers” don’t interact with the exisiting community nor try to reach out to them in a real way (not the “we tried our way and it didn’t work so no other strategy will work”)
