There Goes the Neighborhood

IMG_1401 by lc_db

Several “statement” pieces have popped up throughout the First Ward waxing philosophic of the slow gentrification of the area. Neighborhoods change, sometimes for the better, sometimes not so much.

This work is from the Mission Year Arts Team, a group of people who have moved into this urban district from other parts of the country with the hopes of bettering the area. The group DOES make a difference, but somehow this seems out of character from their mission statement.

If it were me? I might have gone with a “Remember Goliad” theme… but maybe that’s a Texas thing.
