Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 Released

22 Jun 2017 9:41 AM | Oregon Museums Association (Administrator)
The latest Arts & Economic Prosperity study from Americans for the Arts was released on June 17 at the group’s national conference in San Francisco. Arts & Economic Prosperity 5 includes first-time data from rural Oregon.

The study shows Oregon’s arts and culture sector contributed $687 million and 22,299 jobs to Oregon’s economy in fiscal year 2015, and that arts and culture jobs across Oregon generated $469.5 million in household income to local residents and delivered $53 million in local and state government revenue. In addition, the 9,911,552 people who attended arts and culture events spent an average of $42.59 per event excluding the cost of a ticket. Event spending, which totaled $322,956,808, includes meals, parking, souvenirs, babysitting and hotel stays. 

A PDF of the study is available for download on the Oregon Arts Commission website.
