Art brings a community together in the face of change
CityStream: Yesler ARTS Mobile Art Studio

Seattle's historic Yesler Terrace neighborhood has seen plenty of change. Once the first racially integrated public housing project in the country, it's now undergoing a complete facelift. The acres of low-rise apartments are morphing into a mixed-income community with mid-rises and retail development. Long-timers fear the neighborhood will lose its culture and character. The city hopes to ease the transition by using an engaging tool: art. Nils Cowan visits Yesler Arts Mobile Studio (YAMS).
