When people think of Michigan's economy, their minds likely don't turn to art.
However, a new report may get Michigan's creative sector a second look. The non-profit organization ArtServe released its second annual “Creative State Michigan” study last week. The report suggests that creative and cultural enterprises have a positive effect on the state’s economy.
This is something the Arts Council of Greater Lansing has long understood. The council’s programs and initiatives focus on expanding Michigan's art sector.
