Do The Arts Ignite Downtowns?

That’s what Blacksburg’s banking on – at least partially.  I wonder what’s going to happen to the Henderson Lawn concerts, does anyone know?  Will they be moved, or just squeezed into a smaller space?

I’d argue that the arts do in fact improve downtown areas.  Look at Austin, TX, for instance.  Or run a Google search like this and just look at the results.

So what do you think – is this new project, in conjunction with others currently happening in downtown Blacksburg – just what our area needs?
