STOP BEING POOR (The Art Show) is inspired by the sentiment that many politicians and media correspondents have reverberated: “If you’re poor, stop being poor.” In an effort to regain our cultural wealth, we’ve organized a group of talented local artists to bring you this showcase of art, installations, and performances. With sky-rocketing rents and massive neighborhood takeovers, our home, the Bay Area, has become a difficult place in which to live. We invite everyone to come see, but also, purchase art. Can you help us? We need to stop being poor.
