If legendary attorney Maria Smith asks, we take it as an order..."Please promote the reentry art project at Slavic Village that will happen on May 21 and 22, 2016."
The art show is called Rooms to Let. It takes three abandoned houses and allows local artists create a two-day exhibition for the community. Here is a link with more information and a trailer to the video:
One of the artists, Jake Hochendoner, is planning an installation piece of reentry that includes video--either projections or screens. It will feature stories of people facing the challenges of obtaining affordable housing because their convictions make them ineligible for subsidize housing.
Saturday, May 21st and Sunday, May 22nd, 2016.
Pick up an event map on East 54th Street north of Fleet.
RTL houses are located on East 54th. Addresses coming soon!
