America’s Top Arts Cities

Which American city is tops in the arts? If you said New York, you’re wrong. At least according to AmericanStyle magazine. The Magazine ranks America’s best arts cities. “The survey – something less than scientific, since its results are based on reader votes – purports to show that the Midwest is emerging as a new area of artistic influence. Chicago, for example, moved up to No. 1 from its No. 5 position in 2002. And newcomers in the top 25 include Milwaukee and Columbus, with Cleveland returning to the list for the first time since 1998.”
