Arts Sector Contributed $763.6 Billion to U.S. Economy

One of our favorite things to do here at the theater is to learn more about the impact of the arts not just in Auburn, but throughout the United States. We recently came across this article from artsy.net that discusses the economic impact of the arts, & spoiler alert: the economic impact is greater than both agriculture & transportation (two of the largest sectors in our economy) to the tune of $763.6 billion dollars in 2015 alone. To us here in Auburn the impact of the arts is clear in our downtown, but we thought that you might want to read more about it in this insightful & interesting article as well.
