Detroit: The Growing Creative City

While doing the research project for the sector visual arts, the city of Detroit had come up. What I found interesting regarding the city of Detroit was that they were not always seen as the huge creative hub. It was not until 2015 that the world had come around to what Detroit had to offer creatively and culturally. Which I believe the reason being is mostly because Detroit had become very open with the street art aspect of visual arts that most cities have not. By allowing local and international street artists, Detroit has grown their creative and cultural industries independently from what other cities are doing traditionally (fine art, museums, etc.), which is what puts Detroit on the “creative map” in their own unique way.
