20/20 Vision

On March 20, 2011, ArtsinStark unveiled plans spanning five communities and five county-wide initiatives, all designed to integrate the arts into long-term plans for economic development.

HIGHLIGHTS:  When 20/20 Vision is completed we will have:

Three blocks of historic buildings in downtown Louisville fully-occupied with cultural spaces, offices, and specialty retail.

Arts and academics integrated in the majority of our schools systems with test scores “going through the roof.”

More than 75,000 tourists coming to experience the “The Main Crossing” project in Alliance.

The historic “Market Street” project in downtown Minerva with 95% filled with cultural spaces, offices, and shops.

“The Eleven” - a monumental series of public art works celebrating the eleven greatest moments in professional football.

A county wide Public Art Program with more than 350 new pieces of public art.

The “town center” in Jackson transformed into an ongoing celebration of Jackson history.
