The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Urban Development and the Politics of a Creative Class: Evidence from a Study of Artists.

Markusen, Ann.

The author critiques Richard Florida's notion of 'the creative class' with a common class interest, as well as the relationship between artists and urban growth. She argues that artists play multiple roles in an urban economy and, as a group, make important, positive contributions to the diversity and vitality of cities. The author also explores the potential for artists as a political force to lead in social and urban transformation.
