comty-arts.jpgFor every $1 spent on arts promotion, $5 is returned to the local community.  Southern US cities are taking heed of those numbers by luring artists to boost their economies.  (CS Monitor) This staggering statistic rings true: everyone who goes to an arts event, buys the ticket, pays for parking, goes out to eat beforehand, gets coffee and dessert afterwards and frequently buy something new to wear the week before.  LOL.
