Anyone can advocate for the arts and make a significant contribution to the well-being of our society.
Museums are economic engines. Economic impact data compiled by the American Alliance of Museums and Oxford Economics shows that museums contribute $50 billion a year to the U.S. economy and generate $12 billion in tax revenue to local, state, and federal governments. Museums also are vital local sources of employment, supporting 726,000 jobs annually.
