Moderated by Dr. Maxwell L. Anderson, the Eugene McDermott Director of the Dallas Museum of Art, this panel focused on the international urban movement that fuses city planning initiatives with the development and construction of municipal cultural entities. This new model for economic and cultural development has spawned freshly conceived cultural districts that combined represent some $250 billion in current investment, with more than 100 such districts rising from the ground or in the planning stages around the globe
