Detroit Art City

Says Grist while reporting on the Detroit FAB Lab, an incubator for artists, artisans, and entrepreneurs, "something is stirring in Detroit." The news piece goes on to report about the ArtPlace grants in Detroit but then questions, "if the goal is to strengthen local economies, are these people wise to throw their money at artists? Wouldn't foundations and government agencies be better off putting their money toward industries that create real jobs? " Harsh way to put it! Also, can someone please define "real job," once and for all? We are not sure we have one, either. [Grist]
