New Report: Arts and the New Administration

« Back

Jan 30, 2018

How are artists reacting to the new administration and what do they see as their role in the coming years? To help answer those questions, Vogl Consulting surveyed 1,100 arts practitioners through an online questionnaire and conducted interviews with 15 arts advocates and cultural sector leaders.

The results of the research indicate that:

  • The top areas of concern for the arts in the new administration are: 1) social justice 2) federal arts support 3) climate change and 4) arts education.
  • Respondents are least concerned about: 1) the impact on the art market and 2) audience/visitor attendance.
  • Artists and arts organizations are already engaged in a significant amount of work addressing social and environmental issues. 75% of artists report that social and/or environmental justice are a part of their work.


In survey comments, respondents “expressed greatest concern about the principles of democracy, free speech, civil rights, immigrant rights, social justice as well as finding ways to heal a divided nation.”
