On December 7, 2012,  The Connecticut Office of the Arts and the Connecticut Arts Alliance hosted an event at Waterbury’s Palace Theater to  release the state’s Arts and Economic Prosperity report detailing the nonprofit arts and cultural industry’s impact on Connecticut’s economy.

This, the 4th study of the nonprofit arts and culture industry’s economic impact conducted by the Americans for the Arts, is the most comprehensive study of its kind ever conducted and includes customized findings on 182 study regions representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Randy Cohen, Vice President of Research and Policy at Americans for the Arts, presented the results of the statewide report.  View the report here.
