Clarissa Uprooted: Exhibition Opening

RIT City Art Space 280 E. Main St., Rochester, NY

Multi-media exhibition will immerse visitors in the experience of historic Clarissa St. where internationally renowned Jazz artists played, families sought their American Dream, and people looked out for one another. The erasure of this once thriving African American residential and business district through "urban renewal" has had ripple effects on our entire community. Visitors will get to feel the magic, see themselves in Greater Rochester’s legacy story of what we lost on Clarissa St., and imagine how we restore thriving communities today.
