Ever wonder how much money the average artist earns in a year? Or what percentage of artists are male or female or members of a minority? Or what the average level of education is for artists? Ever wonder what city boasts the highest number of artists? (Hint: If you’re talking about fine artists, art directors and animators, the answer isn’t New York—nor Los Angeles.)
You can find answers to all these questions and more in the newly released report, Artists in the Workforce: 1990-2005, created by the National Endowment for the Arts. Download a free PDF of this surprisingly readable and easy-to-navigate 148-page report (or the eight-page summary) and get the facts—on artists.
