  • Abstract

    Research by Americans for the Arts provides an in-depth look at the perceptions and attitudes about the arts in the United States. An Americans for the Arts and Ipsos Public Affairs survey of more than 3,000 American adults in 2015 provides current insight on topics including support for arts education and government arts funding, personal engagement in the arts, the personal benefits and well-being that come from engaging in the arts, and if/how those benefits extend more broadly to the community.
  • Abstract

    The purpose of this study is to measure the following from the public's perspective: (1) personal engagement in the arts as attender, collector, and creator; (2) support for arts education and government arts funding; (3) opinions on the personal and well-being benefits that come from engaging in the arts; and (4) if and how those personal benefits extend to the community.
