Local acclaimed music and arts scene is a driving force in Eau Claire development, panelists at UW-Eau Claire say
Without the idea of the Confluence Arts Center five years ago, downtown Eau Claire might be a drastically different place today.
That’s according to Jamf Software co-founder Zach Halmstad, who joined three other panelists at a discussion Tuesday to highlight the role of music and the arts in downtown Eau Claire’s economic surge.
“When I look at this,” Halmstad said as he gestured at a graphic display behind him of the $45 million arts center, which is under construction and expected to open next year, “this is economic development through the arts.”
