What are the arts worth to Nebraska? Until recently no information has been available to answer that question. The arts provide an important cultural contribution, but they also support the economy by employing people, renting buildings, and purchasing supplies and services. The intangible attributes of artistic endeavors are commonly recognized. Economic contributions, however, have received little attention.
