Growing interest in the arts’ ability to revitalize neighborhoods and spur economic growth has led to a number of studies on how government can cultivate artistic epicenters in hopes of benefiting from their positive effects. Drawing on a broad base of literature, this article studies the major theories of the arts as economic drivers, discusses arts-based neighborhood revitalization tactics, and explores emerging cultural and economic trends in Detroit. Finally, public policy recommendations are made based on these findings.
