A group of 17 local artists have created an exhibit which tackles the issue of gentrification. "Tu Casa Es Mi Casa: Artists Respond to Gentrification" runs through April 10th at the Polvo Art Studio in Pilsen. The exhibit hopes to bring awareness of the changes that are occurring in neighborhoods that are considered low-income areas, while residents are being displaced and pushed out. Some even attribute gentrification to the artists themselves, and here they get a chance to respond.
