Culture Works Helps Facilitate Local Data for AEP5

Arts mean business!

Did you know local arts and culture industries generate $360.1 million in total economic activity, support the equivalent of 10,702 full time jobs, and account for $31.6 million in local and state government revenues?

Culture Works collaborated to gather regional data as part of the national Americans for the Arts impact study, Arts and Economic Prospecty 5 (AEP5).

The Arts are economically vital to our community because they create jobs, commerce, and tourism to the region.
