Did You Know?
Arts are good for local merchants. "The typical arts attendee spends $24.60 per person, per event, not including the cost of admission on items such as meals, parking, and babysitters. Attendees who live outside the county in which the arts event takes place spend twice as much as their local counterparts ($39.96 vs. $17.42)-valuable revenue for local businesses and the community." - Randy Cohen, VP of Research and Policy at Americans for the Arts, the nation's advocacy organization for the arts
The Local Arts Index (a project of Americans for the Arts) contains extensive data to help "understand the breadth, depth and character of the cultural life of a community." For example, here is a small bit of arts data for Jackson County, Missouri:
