Join us for the opening of a collaborative project featuring stories of community and resilience from public housing residents organized byMore Art, Cynthia Tobar, & Aldo Soligno. Featuring RBSCC and their Hope Gardens Senior Center.

This multi-media exhibit aims to bring longevity to public awareness around the issues that residents have had to contend with for decades. Through this project, we hope to inspire action towards preserving and improving affordable for our forgotten neighbors in public housing.
