Chicago and Ann Arbor mentioned in Atlantic CityLab Report on the Arts

Yet another article on the economic importance of the arts.  We say it and say it, but is anyone listening?

Note the chart that indicates that Chicago, while hosting an important arts cluster,  is still less artcentric than its population should suggest.  Ann Arbor is listed as “punching above its weight” in the arts, but I hasten to add that this analysis includes all arts– not just visual arts– music, theater and the like.  My own personal experience in Ann Arbor indicates to me that the town is more supportive of performing arts and music than to visual arts.
