Oral Interview-CO

This track is an interview with Lowell Craig, Director of local non-profit gallery Index Art Center, and former artist at 31 Central.  Craig completed a full-hearted documentary film 31 Central focused on artists in the building facing eviction in the name of revitalization in 2017.  In this interview I ask Craig the same questions he asked the artists in his documentary, such as describing changes in the neighborhood and building over time,  as well as what the building’s management was like. The conversational 42 minute interview expands on the original questions while delving into the importance of community and the role of artists in the gentrification process.
