Lanesboro, MN Named one of AMERICA’S TOP TWELVE SMALL-TOWN ARTPLACES

Posted in Lanesboro Business Announcements

(Chicago, IL, Date TK) . . . America’s Top Twelve Small-Town ArtPlaces were announced today by ArtPlace, a collaboration of leading national and regional foundations, banks, and federal agencies committed to accelerating creative placemaking—putting the arts at the heart of a portfolio of strategies designed to revitalize communities.

ArtPlace Director Carol Coletta said, “Earlier this year, ArtPlace announced America’s Top Twelve ArtPlaces in major metropolitan areas—vibrant communities identified as being exceptionally successful in combining the arts, artists, and venues for creativity and expression with independent businesses, restaurants, and a walkable lifestyle. It is equally important to recognize and celebrate dynamic Small-Town ArtPlaces and the unique qualities that make them well worth the journey to explore and enjoy.”

The twelve communities had the highest concentrations of arts non-profits, core arts-oriented businesses, and workers in creative occupations among smaller towns in the United States, according to data analyzed Impresa, Inc., a Portland-based firm specializing in the study of regional economies.

In alphabetical order by state, the Top Twelve Small-Town ArtPlaces for 2013 are:

1. Eureka Springs, AR

2. Crested Butte, CO

3. Ketchum, ID

4. Vineyard Haven, MA

5. Boothbay Harbor, ME

6. Lanesboro, MN

7. Highlands, NC

8. Taos, NM

9. Marfa, TX

10. Stowe, VT

11. Eastsound, WA

12. Saratoga, WY

America’s Top Twelve Small-Town ArtPlaces is a new annual ArtPlace initiative recognizing smaller communities in the country where the arts are central to creating the kinds of places where people want to live, work, and visit.

America’s Top Twelve Small-Town ArtPlaces:
