Creative Economic Development Study
The Impact of Visual Art in Commercial Environments
The Creative Economic Development Study (CED) is a 2015 research paper attempting to assess the impact of visual art in commercial environments. The study was sponsored by Art Force in conjunction with Timothy D. Murray, adjunct instructor of the University of St. Thomas.
This page is meant to give you a bird’s eye view of the study and it’s results. For a fuller picture, make sure to read the blog and download the CED study itself. The CED helped us develop many of our key initiatives including Art Force Academy (where you are now!), SmartArtProgram.com, our Comprehensive Art Management program, the Community Fund, the Venture Lab and the Wings Suite.
