ARTINFO, has produced a tidy little report about how three cities hit hard by the recession, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Washington, D.C., are finding new ways to keep their art institutions afloat.
Los Angeles is proposing the repurposing of fees charged to government-funded construction and usually used toward new acquisitons, to support staffing for it’s 25 arts centers.
Detroit is leveraging social media to attract a younger audience; is it telling that the eggheaded DIA is also “reinstalling its collection in 2007 with simpler labels and more interactive elements?”

Factum Arte studios, have also been used to collaborate with just about every big name in 3-D art installation and sculpture in the contemporary art world, including: Marc Quin, Anish Kapoor, Urs Fischer, Jeff Wall, and Louise Bourgeois.
