Artists in D.C. are no strangers to displacement amid gentrification; it’s a phenomenon that’s been happening for years, decades even. Last year, when a developer bought the property at 411 New York Ave. NE, the artists working out of the building protested their eviction; the developer went on to propose a boutique hotel which would also include artists’ studios and an art gallery–the first in the nation. But many artists are wary of the idea, and it’s sparked a discussion about the role of government and private entities in making space for artists.
