Presenting: The Rent Is Too Damn High!
Join the Color BLOC on Saturday, April 7 at 6 PM at the Crescent City Boxing Gym for an art-based festival event featuring an exhibition and catalogue publication celebrating the New Orleans Tricentennial.
Representing a diverse network of over 350 artists, art professionals, and culture bearers working in various disciplines, The Rent Is Too Damn High! creates a platform for Black New Orleanians to use art, history, and culture to make meaning of the city’s tricentennial legacy and, ultimately, shape it. The disconnect between culture and businesses causes displacement: others can capitalize on the production of Black art and culture while many Black artists and culture-bearers cannot, and so The Rent Is Too Damn High!
