NEA releases latest survey of public arts participation

Last week, the National Endowment for the Arts released the full results from the nation's largest, most representative survey of adult participation in the arts. The new Survey of Public Participation in the Arts (SPPA) records the different ways that American adults (ages 18 and older) engage in the arts, where that engagement takes place, and why adults participate in these activities. The survey report also tracks demographic characteristics of those who participate and respondents' perceptions of the availability of the arts in their communities. The report covers both national and state-level data as well as selected urban areas. Read the NEA press release and get a link to the survey here.
