The Hodge

Synopsis: 

This documentary will be featuring the story of Lolita Wilson and the artwork of The Visit Arts Collective. The Hodge is the living-artist space that is the core structure that unifies Lolita, artwork, and the socioeconomic paradigm of Cleveland. The goal of this documentary is to tell the stifled story of Cleveland artists who are stimulating change through their artistic platform.

Through the work of the Hodge's artists, the unheard stories of gentrification, racism, and other institutionalized barriers segregating the city of Cleveland will be told. The Hodge is currently pushing out residents in order to increase rent and renovate the building and we hope to expose this unjust situation and fight for the tenants right to continue to create their impactful artwork.
