Arts as Economic Game ChangersNew York, NY
“At a time when America is facing severe unemployment, it turns out that a bench, a bush, and a vision – when infused with the arts – can be economic game changers,” states John Cary in this Christian Science Monitor op-ed on the launch of ArtPlace.
He goes on to say that “Art and design, while often positioned as luxuries, are actually big, underutilized economic drivers.” And that the visionary funders behind ArtPlace should “seize this moment by redoubling their investments.”
Thanks, John. We couldn’t agree with you more.
