This month WIN presents:

Randy Cohen, ‘Art and the Local Economy’

The City of Reno recently commissioned Randy Cohen and Americans for the Arts to conduct a study on the economic impact of Arts on our local community. WIN is pleased that the findings of this study will be debuted to the WIN audience. You won’t want to miss this presentation on how our Northern Nevada arts scene measures up to national benchmarks and what really is the impact of art on our economy and the fabric of our community.

Randy Cohen is Vice President of Research and Policy at Americans for the Arts.  He recently published Americans Speak Out About the Arts, one of the largest national public opinion studies about the arts ever conducted, and publishes the two premier economic studies of the arts industries—Arts & Economic Prosperity, the national impact study of nonprofit arts organizations and their audiences; and Creative Industries, a mapping study of the nation’s 703,000 arts establishments and their employees.  Randy developed the National Arts Policy Roundtable, an annual convening of leaders who focus on the advancement of American culture, in partnership with Robert Redford and the Sundance Institute. His 10 Reasons to Support the Arts blog recently received the Gold Award from the Association of Media & Publishing—their top honor for best blog post of the year. Randy has given speeches in 49 states and regularly appears in the news media—including the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and on C-SPAN, CNN, CNBC, and NPR.

Randy’s presentation to WIN is made possible by the City of Reno.
