The community installations first went up on Sunday. These visual protests seem to be in response to the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities recent decision to keep the "The New Migration" 5x5 project in Anacostia, after promising to relocate the project in response to community opposition. Anacostia residents and business owners are telling The Advoc8te that they are "hoping to bring attention to the long-time problem of blighted and vacant buildings in Anacostia -- many of which are owned by DC government."
In an effort to be balanced, The Advoc8te is looking for the full statement from the Arts Commission on their reason behind keeping "The New Migration" installation in Anacostia. As soon as it is located this post will be updated. You can read a partial statement HERE on the Washington City Paper website.
