Study: American Participation In The Arts Is High

A new study of audiences for the performing arts in America confirms a high rate of participation and consumption of the arts. “Approximately three-quarters of those participating in the newest survey reported attending one live professional performing arts event within the past 12 months. While this ranged from a high of 78% for Boston respondents to a low of 71% for those in Sarasota, the numbers nevertheless represent a significant level of continuity across a broad swath of the nation.”
