A view outside the Kunsthalle Detroit, International Center for Contemporary Art is shown in Detroit, Monday, May 23, 2011. A Russian-born art consultant wants to restore Detroit’s status in the art world by drawing artists to an unlikely place. Tate Osten is the director of a nonprofit group that spent $60,000 on a century-old vacant former bank building in a blighted, crime-infested section of the city. If it takes root, she hopes galleries and other businesses follow, potentially transforming the downtrodden area in the same way art houses famously changed the Chelsea and SoHo neighborhoods of New York City.
