Measuring the Muse: Arts Research from the Frontlines

No longer a policy afterthought, the arts have made a successful case in recent years for their importance as an industry and an aid to education. But what is the real value of creativity in the economy? How are artists and cultural institutions faring, and how are they affecting their communities across the United States? Are young people getting their information about books and music in fundamentally new ways? Is arts participation on the decline? What role does cultural journalism play in the swiftly evolving media landscape? All of the questions were explored in a recent panel discussion sponsored by the National Arts Journalism Program, Alliance for the Arts and Columbia University Arts Initiative, with support from the Wallace Foundation.
