Some Galveston leaders are eyeing the island’s arts and cultural scene as the next big draw for residents and visitors, and as a boost to the city’s economy.

As I read this an ad came on NPR for " Visit St. Pete" in Florida touting the Salvadore Dali Museum, the Chihuly Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts. These are the kinds of attractions it takes to become an art destination. St. Petersburg has 5x the population of Galveston. It will be a challenge to bring that kind of quality art venues to the island, but I think it's a challenge well worth undertaking.
