Benefit of Arts Programs.

How Art Programs Benefit Communities and Businesses:

Arts improve academic performance.

Students with an education rich in the arts have higher GPAs and standardized test scores, and lower drop-out rates—benefits reaped by students regardless of socio-economic status. Students with 4 years of arts or music in high school average 100 points higher on the verbal and math portions of their SATs than students with just one-half year of arts or music.

Arts are good for local merchants.

Attendees at nonprofit arts events spend $24.60 per person, per event, beyond 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.

Nonprofit Arts Are a Multi-Faceted Economic Powerhouse.

A vibrant arts community not only keeps residents and their discretionary spending closer to home, it also attracts visitors who spend money and help local businesses thrive. In other words, it promotes tourism. Thirty-four percent of audiences we surveyed traveled from outside of the county in which the event took place. This event-related spending was more than twice that of their local counterparts ($47.57 vs. $23.44), and 69 percent of these nonlocal attendees indicated that the primary purpose of their visit was “specifically to attend this arts or cultural event.” Among local attendees, 41 percent said they would have traveled to a different community to attend a similar cultural event, if the event they wanted to attend was not taking place in their own community. That’s the sort of statistic [I] hope all our local government leaders begin to hear and take notice of.
