dc.descriptionThesis available in Rice Library University Archives and Special Collection.
dc.description.abstractBlight and stigma have plagued a core inner-city neighborhood of Evansville, Indiana for decades. The area formally known as Haynie's Comer was this neighborhood. Through implementation of a revitalization plan including various public and private entities and coordination with the University of Southern Indiana, changes to the vitality of the neighborhood have already begun. The partnerships between the city of Evansville and the University of Southern Indiana and the inclusion of an annual national outdoor sculpture competition, SculptEVV, have been initiated. Continued partnership in the revitalization of efforts will turn this once blighted area and currently "income-depressed" city from poverty to prime allowing for significant change and stability. This thesis is a reflection of past, current, and proposed future efforts to continue that work. It will establish the need and desire to continue the work. In conclusion, I have defined the ways in which the partnership and work can continue to provide a positive outcome for the city of Evansville and the University of Southern Indiana.
