I monitor a number of blogs focused on tourism promotion and came across a really interesting post on Joanne Steele’s blog, RuralTourismMarketing.com. It asks the question Can The Arts Save Your Small Town? I thought this was an interesting question because of the strength of Prescott’s arts community with such things as the 4th Friday Arts Walk, Elks Opera House Restoration and the new TIS Gallery.
Joanne starts “The topic of our monthly Revitalization Team meeting was to be art as an economic development tool. Who should appear at my info table at our small town summer festival but an expert in art towns!”
