The 2017 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts (SPPA), is produced jointly by the Nationale Endowment for the Arts' Office of Research & Analysis and the U.S. Census Bureau. The SPPA reveals the number and share of U.S. adults who attend performing and visual arts events, read books and literature, and personally perform or create art, among other forms of arts participation. It highlights trends in attendance at performing and visual arts events, as well as in reading and movie-going, between 2002 and 2017. You can learn how many people are engaging in the arts and how attendance/reading has changed in recent years. Read the complete report.
