Public Art & Effect on Economy : LUSENET : Public Art : One Thread

Does anyone know of any research that has been done to track the amount of revenue or boost in a city's economy that has displayed public art?

For instance, Chicago displayed the popular cows two years ago. I'm wondering if there are any studies that track how much money these cows brought in through tourist dollars or other forms of revenue directly related to the cows's presence in the city. (I'm looking for any city, not just Chicago.)

Please point me to any resources, either privately published or through the web.

Thanks, Michelle Referenc Librarian
