The Performing Arts in a new era

Several of the authors of CAN’s essays about the field of community arts refer to a devastating RAND study of the financial prospects for U.S. performing-arts organizations. The same study, mentioned in APInews #25, has been quoted at every arts conference since it came out in September 2001.
Small organizations, its says, will probably survive by looking to their communities, and large organizations will harvest the big philanthropic bucks. It’s the mid-sized groups that have to worry. The study, "The Performing Arts in a New Era" by Kevin McCarthy, Arthur Brooks, Julia Lowell and Laura Zakaras, costs $20 in paperback, but it’s available as a free download from RAND's Web site. The site also offers a quick-reading research brief.
