Ian Campbell, general and artistic director of the San Diego Opera, has a dream: that one day soon, the city of San Diego will have an art center downtown. Campbell spoke with NEA?s Josephine Reed about the importance of the arts to transforming city centers and acting as an economic engine for cities. Key fact: there are more than 4,400 arts-related businesses in San Diego, either directly working in the arts or providing services to arts organizations.
