Erie Times-News takes the pulse of the arts in our community

posted on: Monday, February 18, 2013

The Erie Times-News published its Erie 2013 annual economic report on Sunday, February 19. The report, also published online, included a section on Erie Vital Signs, the community collaboration that tracks indicators that reflect and measure our county's well-being in eight topical areas including Brain Gain and Cultural Vitality.

Two articles in this section are of particular interest to arts and culture audiences: Create prosperity with class and New studies paint picture of arts. Both articles discuss how the arts drive economic prosperity and community vitality -- key points of CultureSpark, the Erie County Cultural Master Plan.
