The Houston Economics Club A Chapter of the National Association for Business Economics Presents “The Arts Mean Business for Houston” Delivered by Randy Cohen, Vice President of Research and Policy Americans for the Arts
About the TopicThe arts have a significant impact on Houston. The nonprofit art scene contributed $977.7 million to Houston’s economy in ’11, of which $414.6 million was spent on employee salaries, vendor services and supplies while audiences pumped an additional $563.1 million into the economy. That’s based on Arts & Economic Prosperity IV, a study conducted in ’11 by the Houston Arts Alliance and Americans for the Arts. Given Houston’s recent growth, the impact likely exceeds $1 billion today. Please join The Houston Economics Club on Wednesday, November 13 when Randy Cohen with Americans for the Arts discusses the business-side of the arts in Houston.About the SpeakerRandy Cohen is Vice President of Research and Policy at Americans for the Arts, the nation's advocacy organization for the arts. He publishes The National Arts Index, the annual measure of the health and vitality of arts in the U.S. Randy developed the National Arts Policy Roundtable, an annual convening of leaders who focus on the advancement of American culture, in partnership with Robert Redford and the Sundance Institute.
