Re: “Save Oakland Art

Artists are canaries in coal mine. Arts communities are important as cutural and business incubators but get no respect from corporate and political greedmeisters. Perhaps artists (and restaurants) should just down overnight and boycott all inner-city activities and re-locate to an artists colony like Benicia and market the Arts & Culture with true Heart & Soul. Without an arts community, the city's urban core will not survive as a thriving magnet to attract more business and tourism. It becomes a vacuum of buildings and condominiums with workaday drones with no where else to go except work and back to their condos. Restaurants are also considered artists hubs. I remember Downtown Oakland before artists and restaurants opened in the Temescal / Uptown / Downtown area. It was a ghost-town. I lived in Oakland since 1968 while first attending CCAC on upper Broadway and College Ave. I never went downtown until Oakland Museum first opened its doors in 1969.
